Event Report - Fall Migration Bird Walk

The fourth annual Fall Migration Bird Walk yielded a productive afternoon of bird watching! Nineteen birders comprised of third, fourth, and fifth grade students tallied thirteen individual species including American Goldfinch, Turkey Vulture, and White-breasted Nuthatch. One highlight of the walk was a Sharp-shinned Hawk zooming across the parking lot in pursuit of some songbirds in the white pines by the cafeteria entrance of the school! Also, birders on this walk observed seven Chimney Swifts zipping back and forth over the treetops hunting for insects. This observation represents the highest number of this species seen at once on the nature trail! This walk also gave students great views of many of our backyard songbirds like American Robin. All told, this afternoon of birding was another excellent display of the wildlife found on our nature trail!
