We held out first community bird watching group event this past sunny Saturday! We had a great turn out and the birds were active, making the morning amazing.
You can see neighbors learning about looking for bird feeders as a good starting point for finding birds. Here are some of the cuties we saw on our walk:
At the base of our neighborhood's nesting owls tree you'll find it's dropping and the bones of its prey. Check out these rodent skull and bones which made someones dinner.
As the group was ending a gaggle of geese flew overhead. If you look closely you'll notice this gaggle was in the shape of a bird. Perfect way to end our morning bird watch.
We also learned about this great online birding resource: BirdFeederHub.com
The new group, "The Walkin' Robins," hope to continue this educational and community building event every 1st Saturday of the month at 9am in Colonial park throughout the spring and summer! Join your neighbors for about an hour to identify and learn about our local birds. Kids and dogs welcome (no cats). Come learn and share what you know about the wonderful creatures that live in our neighborhood.
Thanks to our neighbors for your knowledge and support!
