Mother’s Day Walk: The Full List

We had a great Mother's Day Walk in Ridgefield yesterday, with more than 50 people enjoying the beautiful weather and cooperative birds.

AudubonTripSkeetkillMarshWe had a few photographers with us as well, including Patrick Carney,  who took the shot of the Chestnut-sided  Warbler above at the Ridgefield Nature Center and the Snowy Egret at left at Skeetkill Creek Marsh.

We also had TV coverage from NY1. Link is here.
