Birdwalk at Kent P Wednesday June by Rick Hollis

Kent Park is lovely this time of the year. Might be nice to see it without rain, but the prairies are starting to become full of color. The lake is full of water.

Wednesday, 19 June, was another of our Wednesday Bird Walks. As usually we started at 8 and walked for a couple of hours. There were 6 birders and

6 birders, mostly none were regulars. We got 32 species, considering the darkness in the wooded area and the denseness of the leaves, the birds were hard to see. And it is mid June so bird song was short and quiet.

Mallard  1, Mourning Dove  1, Yellow-billed Cuckoo  2, Green Heron  1, Red-tailed Hawk  2, Red-headed Woodpecker  5, Red-bellied Woodpecker  2, Eastern Wood-Pewee  2, Great Crested Flycatcher  3, Eastern Kingbird  1, Warbling Vireo  1, Blue Jay  3, American Crow  2, Barn Swallow  1, House Wren  4, American Robin  4, Gray Catbird  6, European Starling  2, American Goldfinch  1, Field Sparrow  3, Henslow’s Sparrow  2, Eastern Towhee  2, Bobolink  1, Orchard Oriole  1, Baltimore Oriole  1, Red-winged Blackbird  6, Common Yellowthroat  3, American Redstart  4, Northern Cardinal  4, Rose-breasted Grosbeak  3, Indigo Bunting  3, and Dickcissel  1.

I took a number of pictures this morning but none were birds.
