This morning at Berlin Pond, the highlights were a Bald Eagle and Rusty
Blackbird, towards the south end of the pond. An American Bittern was
towards the other end. Also, a lone spring peeper was calling.
At North Branch Nature Center, a Palm Warbler was hanging out by the river,
and a Green-winged Teal at one of the beaver ponds. Blood Root, Colt's
Foot, and Beaked Hazelnut are currently in bloom.
Have a great weekend!
(and to those who observe, happy Passover!)
