Out list of birds was quite reasonable for a March day. We only tallied one bird from the four that I included in the description, Eastern Phoebe. However, that bird gave quite a few great looks with a pair by the Hemlock Creek bridge, probably starting to nest underneath. I shared my 2006 nest photo collage from Tinker's Creek State Nature Preserve.
Throughout the hike, Song Sparrows were plentiful, including a ten count moving away from us by the largest Circle Emerald pond. Those were seen just after we spooked a Wood Duck pair from the pond edge. Overhead at the field were Turkey Vultures and a Red-shouldered Hawk. Near the Button Road Hill, several Golden-crowned Kinglets flitted around, but didn't provide many cooperative looks.
Thanks to Frank Comodeca for taking these quality pictures during the hike (click the image below).
