April 21 Bird Walk

A beautiful morning to be on the boardwalk trail with 21 other enthusiastic bird watchers. Highlights include singing brown creeper and blue-headed vireo, as well as good looks at a field sparrow and bluebird taking advantage of what is now “Meadow” Perez. The trail also features a nice assortment of spring ephemerals, many just coming into bloom. Two more Wednesday walks to go at the center and don’t forget the 8:30 am walk tomorrow with Nick Thomas at Bald Eagle State Park.
