Spring Migrants at the Rea Farm - Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Some rain on and off, made for tough birding. In spite of the poor weather, we did manage to find an Orange-crowned Warbler, a Common Yellowthroat seen by a few, and good looks at several Palm Warblers. Also had a fly-over Green Heron and two Black-crowned Night-Herons in the willow pond area and nice close looks at 3 Wild Turkeys. Leaders: Bill Boyle, Karen Thompson, Karl Lukens, Michael McCabe, and Kyle Chelius.
