Seven birders met at 7 a.m. to bird Richland Creek Greenway. It was a very chilly morning, even so, four of us came an hour earlier to do some owling and one Barred Owl was seen just at daybreak. As the day progressed the temps went from about 37° to a balmy 57°. The skies were clear and there was no wind. Bird of the day, (my opinion) was an early Northern Parula, which was heard but not seen.
We all had a great time of fellowship and fun the whole morning long. Other wildlife seen were grey squirrels, frogs, turtles, fish and one shy rabbit. Many of us got waylaid on the bridge looking at the many species of fish, and with their vivid colors, markings, and behaviors, they are as varied as birds.
We saw and heard 37 species of birds, the list to follow below.
|Great Blue Heron
Eastern Tufted Titmouse
