The trail off of Tracy road in south hero was very busy today.
First off, two proud Canada geese had to help their brand new fluff balls over a log in the swamp. It was adorable. Lots and lots of yellow rumpled warblers twittering away amongst all the grackles and red winged blackbirds . A redstart came right up to look at me and showed himself off.Then a flock of at least 7 rusty blackbirds sang away ,trying to outdo the grackles. It was hard to count as they chased each other around among the red wings and grackles.Then , to top it off ,right past the heron rookery, the great horned owl was hanging with its kids in the nest, looking really proud.
