Fall Bird Walk #1 2012

Went out to check for migrating birds this morning with a few students.  Did not see a lot, but will hope to see more in the coming weeks.  Had a great look at a juvenile female Cooper’s Hawk (below).  Also below, is the bird list.

Large flocks of common grackles, red-winged blackbirds, European starlings and brown-headed cowbirds moving through.  Also saw large groups of American Robins.

Gray Catbird, Carolina Wren, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, Red-eyed Vireo*, Eastern Phoebe, Downy Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Northern Flicker,  Eastern Wood Peewee*, Acadian Flycatcher*, Chimney Swifts, Yellow-billed Cuckoo*, Black-throated Green Warbler*, American Crow, Northern Cardinal, House sparrows and House Wren*.
