     Wedneday was another beautiful day for a Harrier Meadow guided bird walk.

    The two-hour walk drew 11 birders and naturalists who seemed to like the low-keyed approach, the beautiful views, the changing season and the serenity of the site.

  Highlights included a close American Kestrel and three other raptor species, assorted ducks, a Belted Kingfisher or two, and a small flock of Cedar Waxwings.
