Thursday’s, birding for beginners: "field trip report"

Bird walk for beginners, Morgan Arboretum, April 30, 2015, sunny, plus 14C.

The Arboretum had 25 participants on this beautiful spring morning and 24 species of birds were observed.

We also saw blooming Hepatica, Trout lilies, Spring beauty and Red trilliums. A garter snake was also seen by some of the group but the highlight of the morning was the yellow-rumped warbler a first of the season.

Thanks to David Mulholland, Alison Hackney, Gay Gruner and Audrey Speck for their help and all participants who were a pleasure to bird with. - Barbara MacDuff
