Fall Migrants at the Rea Farm - Saturday, November 19th, 2016

A beautiful morning but a little slow birding. The Willow Pond did have about a dozen Gadwall plus a Mallard and a Northern Shoveler. We also had good looks at two Merlin, and 3-4 Eastern Bluebirds. The front "pumpkin field" hedgerow had a number of sparrows including Savannah, Field, Song, and White-throated.  Leaders: Karl Lukens, Kyle Chelius, Bill Boyle, Karen Thompson, Deb Payson, Keith & Jackie Parker, and Kirsten Fuller.
