It was a little chilly, 2 degrees, when we started the walk. By the end it was sunny and 19, a beautiful spring day. My daughter Shannon and Erik came along also. Joel Coutu was leading the walk. There were quite a few people following along. He lead us on a very informative tour around the park.
We spotted a Double-crested Cormorant male in pre-breeding plumage. He was on the other side of the river perched on a log.
Near the riverbank and next to the path, an American Robin was building a nest.
A pair of Northern Cardinals were flying around.
There were Canada Geese, Wood ducks, and Mallards near the shore.
On the bank of the river, we spotted a Fox Sparrow on the ground.
The little Screech Owl was sleeping. We were very quiet.
There were plenty of Gray Squirrels scurrying about.
Flowers are starting to bloom. Spring is here.
Erik spotted a pair of American Goldfinches in a tree.
While we were walking, we heard ‘fee bee’ being called out. Shannon spotted the Eastern Phoebe high above us.
Song Sparrows were everywhere.
so were House Finches.
That all for today’s walk.
