Good time to be out walking the trails at the local Strathroy Conservation Area


I was out late Friday afternoon for a short walk at the Strathroy Conservation Area.  The trails are a little wet and muddy so appropriate footwear is advisable.  Birds were scattered around throughout.  I saw the following:

  • TURKEY VULTURE
  • CANADA GOOSE
  • MALLARD
  • BALD EAGLE
  • BROAD-WINGED HAWK
  • SPOTTED SANDPIPER
  • MOURNING DOVE
  • DOWNY WOODPECKER
  • NORTHERN FLICKER
  • BLUE JAY
  • AMERICAN CROW
  • TREE SWALLOW
  • BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE
  • WHITE-BREASTED NUTHATCH
  • CAROLINA WREN
  • HOUSE WREN
  • GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET
  • AMERICAN ROBIN
  • GRAY CATBIRD
  • BROWN THRASHER
  • EUROPEAN STARLING
  • YELLOW WARBLER
  • YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER
  • PINE WARBLER
  • PALM WARBLER
  • AMERICAN TREE SPARROW
  • CHIPPING SPARROW
  • SONG SPARROW
  • WHITE-THROATED SPARROW
  • NORTHERN CARDINAL
  • RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD
  • COMMON GRACKLE

All that in just an hours time.  And I’m sure I probably missed stuff.  Here are a couple of pics I took.
