We had a great turnout of 24 attendees to this trip led by birders Dane Gallagher and Chuck Henrickson. This included families, couples, and age range from 9 to 70+. Several had learned about the trip from the web, others joined in when they saw us gathering up at the Picnic Point entrance. It was several folks’ first visit to Picnic Point!
We saw a great variety of species of early spring migrants, as advertised, including: redhead, ring-necked duck, common goldeneye, mallard, wood duck, bufflehead, coot, bald eagle, RWB, and a few resident winter birds, like American tree sparrow, black-capped chickadee, hairy woodpecker, red-bellied woodpecker, and brown creeper. The weather was favorable, mild and calm, certainly better than the blizzard yesterday. Chuck and Dane, thank you for leading! And thanks to Doris for schlepping all the supplies down to Fire Ring 2, setting up and lighting the fire!
