Bird Protection Quebec's March 13th Field trip Report

14 birders came out to Hudson this morning with hopes of hearing and seeing some early spring birds. Their wishes were granted with the sights and sounds of several Red-winged blackbirds, Common grackles and a single singing Song sparrow.

The early bird got the worm however, or I should say the Sharpie got the Bohemian waxwing at 7:30, before most of the group arrived. No other waxwings were seen. The bird of the morning was the Merlin that flew over and gave everyone a good

Thanks to everyone who came out and to Wayne for his help.

Also seen was a Muskrat and a very active Mink. - Barbara MacDuff
