SJNC Morning Bird Walk

Sunday morning, May 19, a few of us enjoyed a field trip led by Don MacPhail around Rockwood Park’s trails and arboretum.

This Northern Parula was drying its feathers after a bath:

A pair of Merlins were active while we were out walking.  Here the female has perched near the top of a spruce, and we can see some remnants of its last meal around its bill.

We were also entertained by an industrious male Downy Woodpecker as he excavated his nest:
