Mariton: Tuesday Birding

On Tuesday, Mariton’s Bird Club went to Woodland Hills Preserve in Lower Saucon. This was a golf course that the township bought in order to stem development. They have let it go wild, and maintain a couple of trails through the property. It is easy walking and fun birding.
We saw and heard a good number of birds during the morning, including an Orchard Oriole and several warbler species. It was the common birds that I see often that were fun for me. I didn’t realize it until Carole sent me her great photos of bird species that are easy to find. Right now the males are in their brightest breeding plumage. Their colors are vibrant. Their songs are enthusiastic.
