Yesterday’s Bird Walk — the Full List

Eighteen brave folks fought the wind and cold for our first Winter Solstice Nature walk, in search of the IMG_9519-1elusive Long-tailed Duck and equally elusive Orange-crowned Warbler.

We did tally 24 species, with nine flavors of duck, including the Lesser Scaup above.

And we were treated to a Winter Solstice talk and slide show by Laura Venner and her team at the MEC Auditorium, which featured a small-scale version of Stonehenge and lots of interesting info on solstices.

(Thanks to all who attended, and to Laura and her crew!)  Full bird list follows.IMG_9531
