Sunday’s Walk, Full List, plus Pix (incl. Orange-crowned)!


We had a really enjoyable bird walk at DeKorte Park on Sunday.

Not only did we have great birds and great people, 


but the Marsh Discovery Trail is now open end to end again, which meant more time birding and less time retracing your steps.

In fact some of the best birding of the day was in the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve just off the Transco Trail — including the Orange-crowned Warbler (above), Ruby-crowned Kinglet and Brown Creeper.

A big thank you to Jeff Nicol for providing the photos here, to Denise Farrell and Julie McCall for the bird list that follows, and to all who attended on Sunday.

Full list and more pix follow.  (We apologize for the slightly disjointed list but the blog software has been acting up.)
