Another fantastic bird walk on Sunday! 10 campers, all who have turned into quite the birders. Three “early birds” were waiting at the bell even before I started the wake-up rounds! We saw a total of 37 birds, and 17 species. On this walk we veered away from the main camp area, in search of more forest and waterfront birds. We headed first to the waterfront, then north along the shore to Hoyts Pt and back up along the shrubby edges of the farm fields. We heard several Black-throated green warblers, Oven birds, Song sparrows, and Vireos along with the usual Goldfinches, Blue jays and Chickadees. Two new birds included a Belted kingfisher which we watched fly up the creek and land on the far shore, and a Greater yellowlegs in the marsh. More Black-throated green warblers than we have seen or heard on other trips. Check out our e-bird account at Cornell to see our numbers and the other species we saw. First session Wilderness trips returned today and we’ll hopefully get those lists up in the dining hall for others to see. Perhaps some more coastal and northern sightings!
