Yesterday’s Harrier Meadow Walk: The Full List

Had a great turnout for yesterday's Harrier Meadow walk — 29 species of birds and 37 types of humans (including someDSCN5003 enthusiastic 4H club members).

Highlights included four and twenty (Red-winged) Blackbirds; we are pleased to report that no pie was involved.

Also had our FOY Killdeer, making their semi-wonderful dentist-drill sounds.
