´╗┐Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail, Saratoga, New York, US

May 4, 2020 6:40 AM - 8:45 AM
Protocol: Traveling
1.2 mile(s)
Checklist Comments: Arrived with a fair amount of sun and cool temps, and in the short time I was there, it became cloudy and the wind picked up. It was still great to have birds that I did not see or hear yesterday or the day before, suddenly in our area. Migration is remarkable!
