On this walk through the Preserve to look for Barred Owls, birding enthusiast Chuck Henrikson, guided over forty fans through the Picnic Point Woods, with maples bedecked in yellows and fading reds. The group walked to the Pond marsh to watch Wood ducks, Canada geese and Mallards, and Muskrats, and then all the way up to the Point. David Liebl, also a birder who is familiar with the Preserve and knew the Barred Owl family well, assisted on this walk. It was one of the best fall days of the year. Chuck had brought samples of feathers and owl pellets for his show and tell at the beginning of the tour. Long stretches of the brisk hike, Chuck walked backward so he could tell his bird stories on the way. Even though no owls were seen, David Liebl recorded over 17 bird species on ebird.
