MILL CREEK MARSH: Don Torino reports

   Just in time for October’s arrival, birder Don Torino reports:

    Visited Mill Creek marsh trail [yesterday] morning, The colors were unbelievable. This has to be the most beautiful time of year to visit.

     The yellows of the Goldenrods full of Bumblebees and Monarch butterflies, the faded pinks of the Fleabane and Smartweeds, the purples and blues of the Pokeweeds and the Cedar Berries, and the Whites of the Snakeroot and Sea Myrtle.

No painter could ever put anything on a canvas that would come close to how wonderful it looked Tuesday morning.

 The Savannah Sparrows and Yellow-rumped Warblers seemed to be everywhere ! I hope all your readers get a chance to visit there real soon.
