Mariton: Birding at “Nox”
We ended the Bird Walk Series at Lake Nockamixon State Park. Sharon tallied 41 species as we walked along. This is a great location with a lot of variety. One bird that almost becomes a background sound is the Prairie Warbler. It has a buzzing song that goes up the scale. It likes brushy areas, and I hear them all summer at the lake.

We also came across White-eyed Vireos, which are notoriously hard to see. We did see one flitting among the leaves, but I don’t think any of us got a clear view of it for more than a millisecond. However, while scouting for this walk, Carole Mebus took a wonderful photo of one.
We saw Yellow Warblers, Blue-winged Warblers, Orioles, Kingbirds and many other birds. Of course, you would expect some water birds. Carole got a great shot of a Great Blue Heron in flight.
Carole also took this photo of a Green Heron.
