Among the Lake BARN SWALLOWS,I spotted a lone BANK SWALLOW in the northwest sector.A GREAT EGRET perched on 3 Sisters Islands.
Further on, a stop by of Upper Pool, my hope for an early water thrush,instead I found 5 WOOD DUCKS. Some were in molt.
And breeding birds still occur. AMERICAN ROBINS for one; but a wonderful scene with this species as 6 juveniles bathe in the out rushing water of Falkill Falls.An even more cute scene happened on field #4 , at second base.3 fledgling BARN SWALLOWS in a triangle position all waited for their parent to come by and feed them. Funny watching them.
Eni reported YELLOW WARBLERS as her hi light after we met earlier,with Vinny.Below is her brief report. Tomorrow is her walk for vacationing Michele from the boathouse 8 am.
