2010 Bio-Blitz: Birds

The bird team identified a total of 50 species, and the highlight of the morning was a “fly over” by a juvenile Bald Eagle. Later in the day, the team spotted a pair of adults at the Turtle Pond.

The group had a great time and noticed many fall migrants and winter residents had already begun arriving!
