Bird Walk

Monday I led the first of what is to be a weekly Bird Walk here at Buckskin Mountain State Park. I didn’t really have much of an idea of what to except, but I was actually surprised to have over a dozen interested people show up. Just looping through the campground here in an hour and a half we identified 22 different birds. The last bird we saw was this juvenile Cooper’s Hawk. It stuck me later that this hawk, who preys mostly on other birds, was watching the same little finches, sparrows, and flycatchers that we were.
