EZ Birding - Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

It was a beautiful morning for a walk with a good flight of hawks overhead including Sharp-shinned, Cooper's, Broad-winged, and Red-tailed Hawks, Bald Eagles and Osprey. Although warblers were few, we did get a good look at a male Black-throated Green, both eastern and western Palm, and Black-and-white Warblers. A Phildelphia Vireo, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, and and some close feeding Green-winged Teal were special treats along with our now resident Wild Turkey male. We also had the first Red-breasted Nuthatch and Brown Creeper of the season. Leaders: Catherine Busch, Chris Marks, Nancy Watson, Lynne & Marc Breslow, and Mike Hannisian.
