Hi everyone,

The bird walk started off very humid but the breeze picked up and the
weather became very comfortable. The highlight of the day was watching 3
Caspian terns fly around North Pond. The Green Kingfisher was spotted at
the Canal and has been quietly flying into North Pond. They are not making
their loud clicking sound so it is best to keep your eyes on the water
until you see one fly across. Below is this morning's bird list. Lots of
heard birds today.


Happy Birding!!
