Spring Birding at Ricci Farm: What We Saw and Heard

Bird List from Ricci Farm-May 13, 2018 7:30-9:30 AM

Thank you to Norm Levey for leading this walk. Where a bird was only heard, its name is followed by (h).  Possibly one or two of these were only heard or seen by a leader. Many more birds were heard and identified by Norm, but were too far off the trail for the group to recognize.  The group didn’t see flycatchers, vireos, or raptors, or (to our surprise) phoebes. Great mockingbird calls imitating a Carolina Wren. Eleven warbler species. 36 species total.  Norm has posted a complete listing here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S45622939
