Preview, Today’s MCM Walk: Godwit

1-Hudwit Millcreek 2-001Chris Takacs writes:

I was in Mill Creek Marsh on Monday. High tide was at 9 AM so today’s walk should have a high one. Hudsonian Godwit continues in the second pool on a large log best seen form the trail near the turnpike. (Chris first foundd the bird last week — photo above). Over the weekend a Clay-colored Sparrow was seen on the trail entering the park, near the parking lot.

Orange-crowned Warbler was seen Monday at the second dead end trail.

Full list follows.  (Thanks, Chris! — and to the others who e-mailed Jim W. about the bird while Jim was away.)MCM, Nov. 18
