We had a cold, wet day for our April 28th walk, lead by Bob Yukich. The delayed departure of winter appears to have held back bird migration. We didn’t find many of the species we often see by this time of year, and there were fewer individuals of the species we did find. Despite all that, we ended up with a total of 52 species, including one new one for the CCFEW checklist: Sora.

Here’s the full list:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Mallard
