- While we were waiting at the Parmer Village pond, a Sharp-shinned Hawk flew by. Then a Crested Caracara flew by and landed first on top of a house, and then in the trees across the creek. A few of us got good looks at it through my spotting scope.
- Many flocks of American Robins flew over us the whole time. My estimated total was 750 individual birds.
- Everyone got close looks at this Northern Mockingbird eating the bright red berries off of a Possum Haw (Ilex decidua) bush.
- At the end of the walk back at the Parmer Village pond, we watched a Double-crested Cormorant swallow a large sunfish. How did fish get in that pond? Is it stocked? Is it connected with Lake Creek?
Here's our complete bird list.
