Every Sunday and Monday at 8am, the Delaware Nature Society runs free bird walks at the Bucktoe Creek Preserve. I led the walk this Monday, and we didn’t have to go far to see birds. What is known as the Sharp Road Field was recently hayed, but several large patches of standing grass and milkweed were left for cover and food for wildlife. We circled these patches to find migratory sparrows and ended up seeing a wide variety of birds, including some rare species. Enjoy the photos by Hank Davis to give you a glimpse of what we saw yesterday morning. Attend a bird walk at privately-owned Bucktoe Creek Preserve sometime in the future.
