5 Rivers Yesterday March 26


Denise and I birded a portion of the grounds yesterday, staying far away from the many other people who were also enjoying the springlike afternoon. Highlights included a pair of Eastern Bluebirds, and a flock of American Robins devouring the fruits in the apple orchard near the visitor center.  Full ebird list with a few photos (at link) below. 

Stay safe everyone
