A big thanks to all those who participated in Thursday night's Woodcock Walk at Laurel Hill County Park — sorry the weather turned so cool!
The good news is that we saw/heard our target birds. We saw the Common Ravens fly to their nest, and we heard multiple American Woodcocks peenting (and doing their courtship flights) — and we saw 15+ Black Crowned Night Herons leaving their roost at dusk, as well as several late-flying Great Egrets.
In all, we counted 31 species. Full list follows.
