Bucktoe Creek Preserve Photo Gallery

By Joe Sebastiani, Members Program Team Leader

Photos by Hank Davis

Free bird walks are being held every Sunday and Monday at 8:00 a.m. at the privately-owned Bucktoe Creek Preserve this fall.  Delaware Nature Society staff and volunteers are leading the programs, and on virtually every Monday morning, Hank Davis is a fixture.  With a great camera in tow, Hank has been documenting the birds on the property through his photography.  If you visit, a wonderful album of his bird photography from the property is available for you to browse at the welcome shelter.  Here are a few of his shots from last week.  Join us if you can!  Last week we saw an adult Red-headed Woodpecker, which was a first for the property.  It was in bad light and didn’t stay long enough for a photo.
