Don Burton lead a group of 26 hardy (foolish?) participants on our June 23rd walk at Colonel Samuel Smith Park. It rained to varying degrees for the whole time leaving both the birds and the birders wet and bedraggled. Many of the resident species we would typically expect to see were laying low, nowhere to be found. We made up for that with a few unexpected species. Our walks usually run overtime, but this one ended a bit early. We ended with 28 species. Here’s the list:

Canada Goose
Mute Swan
Lesser Scaup
Red-necked Grebe
Double-crested Cormorant
Black-crowned Night-Heron
Ring-billed Gull
Common Tern
Mourning Dove
Chimney Swift
Warbling Vireo
Northern Rough-winged Swallow

Tree Swallow
Barn Swallow
Cliff Swallow
American Robin
European Starling
Cedar Waxwing
Yellow Warbler
Song Sparrow
Northern Cardinal
Baltimore Oriole
Red-winged Blackbird
Common Grackle
American Goldfinch
House Sparrow

After that, some of us who lasted to the end went to dry off with a hot coffee at Birds & Beans Cafe. Many thanks to them for their ongoing sponsorship of these walks!

It wasn’t great weather for photos, but here are a few from the walk:
