Bird and Nature Walk Sept. 25 - Report
Sarah Faulkner led a 2-hour leisurely hike for both the Canton Land Trust and the Hartford Audubon Society on September 25th at the Mary Conklin Preserve. Attended by 14 people, all were treated to a sunny, cool and beautiful Sunday morning. Many attendees were using apps to help with bird identification, such as Merlin and eBird. Merlin helped us identify the calls of many birds, although not many species were found on this quiet hike. The group made numerous stops to seek birds or identify plants or other items in nature, and had a wonderful time. The highlights included a female scarlet tanager, numerous catbirds, and Eastern phoebes.
