Weekly Report - 2017-03-24 - New Mammal for the Trail!

Today's walk was the first walk of the spring season! Although last week's walk featured a trail caked in ice and snow, the bird activity was mostly the same.

I observed lots of American Robins, Carolina Chickadees, and Mourning Doves. Also, quite a few White-throated Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos were heard singing! Their songs are an encouraging sign that spring has arrived, but soon these species will leave us and head northern breeding grounds since they only visit us in winter. I was surprised I didn't have any Eastern Phoebe on the trail since many have arrived in migration already! Who knows, maybe next Friday?

The most unique find this morning was the evidence of a new mammal on the trail. As I walked past the trailhead, I observed horse tracks frozen into the mud! Obviously not a wild animal, but still a notable observation!
