Taking advantage of a break in the weather, nine
people attended this morning's walk through
Clarendon Town Forest. Despite the late season,
25 species were seen.

Especially of note were good looks at 2 eastern
wood-pewees and several common yellowthroats of
varying ages. 2 swamp sparrows, 1 veery, 1
ruby-throated hummingbird and 1 great blue heron
were also in the vicinity. The highlight of the
day were 2 belted kingfishers who took exception
to 3 American kestrels hunting in their marsh.

Several wood nymphs, a northern pearly-eye, two
clouded sulphurs and an aphrodite fritillary were
seen as well as a myriad of mushrooms.
