The Sunday bird walk went to Legacy Marsh in upper Lantzville. The morning was sunny and hot. We heard and saw many Willow Flycatchers during the morning walk. We spotted a Barred Owl being mobbed by American Robins deep in the forest. Turkey Vultures, Bald Eagles, Purple Martins, Violet-green Swallows and Tree Swallows were seen high overhead. We had great views of a singing Warbling Vireo at the top of a tall tree near the trail. A MacGillivray’s Warbler was heard singing along the trail. We had great views of a family of Yellow Warblers just above the trail.
Nine birders saw and heard the following forty-four species:
