Weekly Report - 2017-01-27

Mild winds and cold temperatures made for a very dry morning on the Nature Trail. Upon my arrival, bird activity was quiet: too quiet. I wandered on my usual walk down the main trail but was met with only flyover birds: American Crows, American Robins, and Common Grackles. After a few Northern Cardinals chipping to announce their presence, I decided to mix up my morning walk!

I walked from the trailhead to the east side of campus to explore the Francis Harvey Green School fields and the adjacent tree line. This area had a lot more bird activity with two Field Sparrows and one female Eastern Bluebird perching right out in the open!

Eastern Bluebird, BSES Nature Trail - 2017-01-27

All told,13 species is a pretty average number for a morning walk, but I would say that the number of individuals for each species was lower across the board than previous weeks.

Here's the eBird list for the morning:
