Good afternoon birders,
A terrific group of enthusiastic folks joined the bird walk this morning, and many saw birds they had never seen before! With the blue skies and sunshine, the insects became active and so did the birds - good looks at Vermillion Flycatcher, Blue-headed Vireo and two Long-billed Thrashers put on a concert for us. Out on the lakes, the Coots seem to be beginning to build nest platforms - yes, spring is in the air!
Come join the bird walk - daily at 8:30 am at the Visitor's Center.
