While the forecast wasn’t promising for the bird walk at Giving Pond, the rain held off and we had a great morning.  If you want to see and hear Yellow Warblers this a good place to go.  They don’t sit still for very long, but everyone got to see them.  The Warbling Vireo is another species that is very abundant here.

We also saw Baltimore Orioles, Orchard Orioles, and Common Yellowthroats.   One of the Ospreys that we saw flew over with a large fish in its talons.  We saw both mature and immature Bald Eagles.  A good morning to disregard the weather forcasters.
