Our Wednesday lunchtime birdwalk was a small, but enthusiastic group: Nick, Becky and Sue. Birds for the outing were also few! A cool wind seemed to keep bird activity down, but we took a short walk along the Oyster River. We called in a small flock of Black-capped Chickadees and heard and observed an altercation between two Eastern Phoebes. One Herring Gull flew overhead, and we had the resident flock of Wild Turkeys and Canada Geese as we drove back to work.
In addition to the birds, Becky found a beautiful cicada clinging to vegetation on the ground.
