Sunday’s DeKorte Walk: The Full Bird List

DSCN9842-001We had an amazing First-Sunday Walk at DeKorte Park, with some amazing birds and lots of really nice folks.DSCN9836

How’s this for highlights: The walk began with a Snowy Owl perched on a pipe atop the Kingsland Landfill (seen by everyone on Disposal Road but latecomers), and it ended with a Light-phase Rough-legged Hawk over the entrance to Dekorte.

Interspersed in between were Bald Eagle (perched on 1E), Am. Kestrels, Northern Harriers and a Common Raven.

Thanks to everyone who attended!

    Jim, I saw a Peregrine after everyone left and I went back out looking for more birds. How do I collect my quarter 🙂
