Spring Migrants at The Rea Farm - Saturday, April 29th, 2017

Prothonotary Warblers were definitely the stars of the day! Not only could we hear at least three singing males from various locations throughout much of the walk, but they also put on a visual show. The highlight occurred when a pair landed on the path a short distance in front of us and the male proceeded to display. We were paying a lot more attention to his strutting than was the female Prothonotary - she was really playing it cool, pretending not even to see him. Leaders: Kathy Horn, Roger Horn, Karl Lukens, & Michael McCabe.
