HARRIER MEADOW: The first guided public walk


Group     We had a solid turnout for the first guided walk at Harrier Meadow on Wednesday.

    Eight birders and plant aficianados saw 33 species, including Kestrels, both kinds of Kinglets, a Green Heron Redtail1 and an amazing up-close view of a Redtail.

    We also saw a tiny non-poisonous snake warming up on the path and a bunch of nifty fungi.

    We still have space for a few more people on the next walk on Wednesday Oct. 15 at 12:30 p.m. The Saturday, Oct. 25, walk at 8:30 is wait-listed. We will announce more walks on this blog.
