Monday, June 25th, a few birders got together at 7:30 a.m. to enjoy a walk led by a very informative Dan Sparks-Jackson. We hiked the entire property starting at the West entrance where there is a grassy pull-off and a crickety wooden bridge across a ditch to access the site. We saw many different birds including a singing Eastern Meadowlark, singing Swamp Sparrows, an Orchard Oriole, what seemed like a million Common Yellowthroats and to top it off, singing Henslow’s Sparrows. Besides the birds, there was much native plants and wildflowers to look at and of course, the life in the creek. Dan mentioned that mid-August would be another great time to visit, when the other wildflowers are in full bloom.
