Friday October 23rd

Gray and blustery today, so we decided to head into the woods for our birds. We walked the perimeter fence at the south end of campus as far as the Oyster River. This swampy area was full of small birds, and one White-tailed Deer - likely the same buck we saw on Wednesday.

Todays birders: Lynn and Sue
Today's birds:
Turkey Vulture
Red-tailed Hawk (being pestered by crows and bluejays)
Canada Goose
Mourning Dove
Rock Pigeon
Northern Flicker (heard only)
Eastern Phoebe
American Crow

Hermit Thrush
Black-capped Chickadee (quite a little flock)
Tufted Titmouse
Northern Cardinal
Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Yellow-rumped Warbler
