Subject: Jackson Park, Hendersonville, NC Birdwalk today
We had about 30 birders turn up for the monthly walk today at Jackson Park.
It was a little cool and misty to start the day, so the birding was a
little slow. When the sun finally broke through we did have a few mixed
flocks that moved through the maples. The most abundant warbler had to be
American Redstart with the highest number being at least 8 in one stretch
of the Warbler Trail. We did manage 12 species of warblers, but numbers
were relatively low for the season- maybe the weather and impending storms
have kept them north. Hopefully the numbers will pick up in the next week
or so.

Our next walk in the area is at Charles D Owen Park in Swannanoa on
September 16 at 8 AM.
