A beautiful and cool Saturday in the park, with a friendly bunch of birders, as always.

This was the usual Saturday morning walk. Two more Saturdays and the walks will end for the summer.

Looking forward to “Puddle Birding” at Orchard Beach, as soon as shorebirds start arriving. The broken underground pipe at the oval has not been repaired and should make for a great freshwater source.
