Nov 21, 2018 8:02 AM Birding Kent Park by Rick Hollis
Only two of use showed up this morning for our last bird walk at Kent Park for the year. Perhaps the cold scared people away. The tow of use that showed up had wonderful time. One we got moving and the sun came out more fully, it warmed up nicely. We walked for 1.5 miles and unfortunately the birds were quiet. It was pretty but quiet. We did see Red-headed Woodpeckers at the normal place.
Things were more active at the blind where we finished our walk.
15 species Red-headed Woodpecker 2, Red-bellied Woodpecker 2, Downy Woodpecker 6, Blue Jay 15, American Crow 1, Black-capped Chickadee 10, Tufted Titmouse 2, Red-breasted Nuthatch 2, White-breasted Nuthatch 4, European Starling 2, House Finch 3, American Goldfinch 4, Dark-eyed Junco 5, Song Sparrow 1, and Northern Cardinal 3.
I am including a picture of the ice at the Fishing Pond. I do not know what caused these fractures. They are too far out from the shore to from rocks.
Our walk are over for the year. We will resume our quiet Bird Walks on every-other Wednesday starting probably in March.
