On Saturday, I completed my 5th walk since agreeing to do civic duties in leading bird walks at Van Courtlandt Park in the Bronx NY. The group of attendees varies in skill level with beginners to those who have been birding for quite a number of years…far more than I have. Interest also varies, with more folks showing up during the Spring migration; now that migration is over save for stragglers, we are now down to those who just enjoy coming out on Saturday morning for the walk.
Wood Duck and her rapidly growing ducklings, Cedar Waxwings, Warbling Vireos, nesting Orchard Orioles, nesting Barn Swallows, nesting Eastern Kingbird, Northern Rough-winged Swallows and a Green Heron. We suspect that the Green Heron is nesting nearby. We also kept our eyes out for Butterflies and had a couple of Red Admirals, Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, several Cabbage Whites and I also was able to photograph a couple of Little Wood Satyrs.
