Friday’s Mill Creek Marsh Walk: The Full List

We had a great turnout, great birds, and great weather for our annual Great Backyard Bird Count walk — this year at Mill Creek Marsh.

Highlights included a Sharpie, a Coop, and lots of Shovelers and Green-winged Teal. Ring-billed gulls and Canada Geese vied for most populous and least popular. (Thanks to all who participated, especially our count keepers Justin and Asia!)

Full list follows.
