Todays community bird watch took us back to Niquette Bay State Park. In
total the group encountered 32 species. The morning started off with a
singing FIELD SPARROW at the Milton Rec. Park where we meet to carpool.
Once at Niquette Bay, the highlights included many singing Brown Creepers, a
good assortment of waterfowl (see below), and a few Golden-Crowned
Kinglets. A complete list follows. Next weeks walk is at the Colchester
Causeway. Contact me off list if you are interested in attending.
