We had a wonderful walk this morning at Judy Marden’s home in Greene.
The weather was warn but still near perfect as it was totally dry.
Others thought so too … we had 20 people attend. Judy’s feeders were
full with food … and birds. We had Bluebirds, an Oriole, hummingbirds,
a Scarlet Tanager called as did a few warblers. We walked the road all
the way to Allen Pond then extended it into Judy’s woods near her home.
We saw or heard 47 species.
Judy thank you so much for allowing us to walk your wonderful preserve.
And Judy kept saying we should have been earlier when more birds were
singing … but we still heard the Wood Thrush.
