Look at that bird in that tree! Tree workshop part 2 June 22nd 2014

Lelia Weinstein Stokes led the walk through bird alley at Worlds End on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon, just after the summer solstice.

We used the same handouts as before and tried to figure out if the deciduous trees have either of these features: opposite compound leaves or composite simple leaves, or maybe alternate compound leaves or alternate simple leaves. By using this simple guide and the complete list of trees at Worlds End we were able to focus in on some great looking trees; Red oak has pointed leaves and white oak leaves are rounded.

While we were hoping to re-find the yellow throated warbler spotted by Phil Edmundson the day before, we had to content ourselves with some wonderful looks at great crested flycatcher, both sp. of orioles and a few other usual sights at this location. Many birds got away and, as we put it, were ‘lost in the bittersweet’
