Seven people attended the second Arboretum Bird walk. We had 34 species. No warblers or vireos but good looks at Carolina Wren and male towhees. Had both species of crow and raven and fairly good views of brown thrasher. Complete list is below.After the walk, some of us were able to see the Western Tanager on Old Main Lawn! Could it be the same one that was here winter 2016?
Next walk at the Arboretum on Thursday April 27.
