BPQ Field Trip Report - Hudson- Feb 3/07

Sheltered areas and close to feeders were the places to be yesterday on Hudson's field trip. The -8C temperatures along with strong winds made birding in open areas uncomfortable.The sun warmed us up as the morning progressed however and our group of 12 birders saw 16 species of birds. The birds of the day were a Cooper's hawk which flew across the trail and gave us all excellent looks and an American robin which was just about the last bird of the morning.Thanks to Wayne Grubert for helping out and to the pleasant group of people who made the morning so enjoyable.The following is the complete list of birds seen.
