Huntley Meadows Bird Trip
May 2, 2016
Yesterday, I went to Huntley meadows with my bird club to look for migratory birds. Here is what we found:
Rose-breasted Grosbeak - It was amazing. He ate from the feeder for a while.
Hooded Merganser. This one didn't have any chicks. We hope it wasn't the same one who had twelve chicks a few weeks ago. Snapping turtles will eat Merganser chicks.
Immature Bald Eagle
Solitary Sandpiper - We got great views.
Goose nest - On a Beaver dam!
Least Sandpipers - Very tiny.
After we saw those birds, we headed to another region of Huntley Meadows. We heard a Barred Owl call "Who cooks for you?" and a Yellow-billed Cuckoo. Then we started heading home and saw these last birds.
Spotted Sandpiper and turtle
Yellow Warbler - This was our fiftieth species. We had 56 by the end.
