Sunday’s Mill Creek Marsh Walk: The Full List

Had a great turnout for our First Sunday walk at Mill Creek Marsh — especially considering the walk was a tad on the chilly/windy side.

Highlights included 24 Cedar Waxwings (FOY) and three Bald Eagles. A Herring Gull may have been seen during the walk. Still awaiting the judges' decision.

Full list and a point-and-shoot-camera shot of one of the eagles follow.

Eagle is in the middle right-hand third of the photo, theoretically. We really did see eagles on our walk.
