Bob Yukich lead our April 27th walk at Sam Smith Park, and despite a dull, blustery day that felt more like winter, we managed to find a nice selection of birds. We missed some usually easy to find species, like American Goldfinch, but found some other surprising ones. We found 4 species of warblers and 3 raptor species. Other notable finds were a flock of Bonaparte’s Gulls, a Spotted Sandpiper, and an early Eastern Kingbird.

We generally don’t see many Night Herons here in the spring, but we found about 20 roosting by the pond. This raises hopes that they may start nesting here.

Here’s the full list, 57 species in all:
