Daniel Webster at sunset September 15th 2013

Daniel Webster at Sunset

Ten members met on this gorgeous late summer afternoon to walk the trails and check out the blinds at this birding hotspot. This was intended to be an unhurried and very leisurely trip to end the weekend. We spent quite a while just sitting in the first blind admiring the (first of the season) Green winged Teal. When they show that amazing teal color they are very handsome indeed. While we were sitting there we also managed to get everyone on the scope for excellent looks of a Solitary Sandpiper.

Woodpeckers showed off well too, we saw no fewer than four Flickers close and busy feeding and had a great look at a Red bellied Woodpecker.


Most memorable perhaps was the view from Fox Hill: Seeing close to 500 Double Crested Cormorants sitting on the electric cables spanning the Green River pretending to be Swallows is a sight none of us will ever forget!
