May Nature Walk

Those of you who attended our May walk at Finn's Point and Supawna Meadows NWR with Jeff and Cathy White know what a great day we had.

Cathy and Jeff are a great spotting team. They were seeing birds and animals everywhere. Because of their superior spotting abilities all of us were able to get good looks at even quick moving warblers. We were treated to sightings of Indigo Buntings, Baltimore and Orchard Orioles, Cedar Waxwings, Great Blue Herons, and Great Egrets. A number of Bald Eagle flyovers keep the excitment level high.

For those of us trying to learn bird songs we heard the sneezy call of the Willow Warbler, the "Whitchety Whitchety" of the Common Yellow Throated Warbler, and the "Sweet sweet a little more sweet" of the Yellow Warbler. Some of our quickest photographers got nice shots of them.

I want to thank Cathy and Jeff for their wonderful leadership. Any time you get an opportunity to go nature hunting with them, take it. You won't regret it.
