Bird Walk, Sept 1 at SCEC

Hi all,

A dozen of us walked the boardwalk loop this morning and enjoyed a variety of birds and the relatively cool start to the day. Good looks at most of the “confusing fall warblers” in the list below.  And as you can see, hummingbirds, robins and catbirds are in abundance (special thanks to the designated counters in our group).
