Huyck Preserve today

Cynthia Edwardson

This morning Chris and I hiked at the Huyck Preserve in Rensselaerville.  The first bird we heard singing was a Louisiana Waterthrush along the river by the visitor center parking lot.  We had twenty-five species including wood ducks, ring-necked ducks, bufflehead, common and hooded mergansers, and a pied-billed grebe on Lincoln Pond.  A few golden-crowned kinglets and a brown creeper were vocalizing as well as at least 5 Eastern phoebes.

Beautiful hiking weather!
