Subject: Silver Lake in Bucks Co.
The following were seen or heard on the morning bird walk from the Silver Lake Nature Center located in Bristol Pa. 

Silver Lake Park/Nature Center, Bucks, Pennsylvania, US
Oct 19, 2019 7:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Protocol: Traveling
Participants: 31.2 mile(s)
Comments:    Lots of birds with Yellow-rumped Wablers  being the most numerous. Also saw a bird that I have never seen in my 15 years of birding Silver Lake...a Virginia  Rail. We first heard the bird making its  kek kek  kek call, we waited and saw the bird come out from the underbrush into a small pool of water about 10 feet away from us giving all three of us great views. We saw  3 Northern Flickers on one    snag doing some kind of head bobbing display while another Flicker watched from a branch next to them.
