June Bird Walk at Muddy Creek Greenway
We had a great bird walk on June 29th at Muddy Creek Greenway. We were able to find both of our target species, Yellow-breasted Chat and Common Yellowthroat! Other highlights included Red-tailed Hawks, Green Heron, Indigo Bunting and a pair of Cedar Waxwings.
April Bird Walk at Reynolda
We had a good walk at Reynolda on April 20th, it was a little windy which made it hard to see some of the warblers, but we did have great looks at a Red-shouldered Hawk!
March Bird Walk at Tanglewood Park
We had a great bird walk on March 16th at Tanglewood Park! Nathan and 25 other birders trudged their way through the muddy and wet trails, but were rewarded with amazing looks at a Great-horned Owl, Bald Eagles, Osprey and mating Red-shouldered Hawks! They even heard an Eastern Screech Owl!! They ended the walk with a total of 57 species, not a bad day! I have included a link to our eBird checklist below!
September Bird Walk at Reynolda
Nathan and about 19 other birders had a nice bird walk at Reynolda on Saturday, September 29th. We had about 9 different species of warblers and a Summer Tanager (pictured below).

As some of you may know, we are expecting a little girl on October 22nd, so it is likely we will not be able to lead a bird walk on October 27th!
There will be an Audubon Walk on October 13th, which is also the day of the “Big Sit” (both at Reynolda) and there will be a Monday Audubon Walk on the 29th at Quarry Park.
August Bird Walk at Tanglewood Park
