We had a small but mighty group for our Young Birders Walk this past Sunday morning (Oct 20) at the West Virginia Botanic Garden near Morgantown. Highlights included yellow-rumped warblers, both golden-crowned kinglets and ruby-crowned kinglets, a hermit thrush, and several blue-headed vireos. We also got to observe a red-backed salamander, discovered under a log by Hannah Clipp.
Our next walk for Young Birders will be held on Saturday, Nov 16, at 10am at the WV Botanic Garden. Everyone is welcome and the walk is free, but the Botanic Garden would like you to register ahead of time via their website ( www.wvbg.org). Send me an email for more information about our Young Birders walks, or if you'd like to help grow the WV Young Birders Club.
Thank you to everyone who came out on Sunday morning, and to the volunteer guides who helped lead the walk! eBird list follows:
