Schoharie Crossing


I visited Schoharie Crossing with a friend this morning.  Walking mostly along the Towpath Trail, we tallied about 25 species of birds.  The highlight was a mated pair of Orchard Orioles, a species I’ve never seen there before.  Other birds included Warbling Vireo, Yellow Warbler (many), American Redstart, Common Yellowthroat, Baltimore Oriole, Killdeer,  and Wood Thrush.  We were surprised that we didn’t encounter more warbler species, nor did we find any ducks.
