Sorry, no photos. Cold, rain, and wind made it feel colder than a mid-winter walk!

Despite the conditions, 17 people came out for the March 31 walk, lead by Andrew Keaveney. Those hardy participants were rewarded with 32 species of birds and numb fingers. The Snowy Owl that had been regular until a few days earlier couldn’t be found, but we  did find a couple of just arrived migrants: an Eastern Phoebe and a Fox Sparrow.

Here’s the full list:

    Canada Goose
    Mute Swan
    Lesser Scaup
    Long-tailed Duck
    Common Goldeneye
    Hooded Merganser
    Red-breasted Merganser
    Horned Grebe
    Red-necked Grebe
    Mourning Dove
    Ring-billed Gull
    Herring Gull
    Sharp-shinned/Cooper's Hawk
    Downy Woodpecker
    Eastern Phoebe
    Blue Jay
    American Crow
    Black-capped Chickadee
    Brown Creeper
    Golden-crowned Kinglet
    American Robin
    European Starling
    American Goldfinch
    Fox Sparrow
    Song Sparrow
    Red-winged Blackbird
    Brown-headed Cowbird
    Common Grackle
    Northern Cardinal
    House Sparrow

    This was definitely the kind of walk that demanded a warm-up at Birds & Beans Café afterwards!
