Pickering Creek Audubon Center

Our Saturday canoe trip was cancelled due to rain, but here are some highlights from the previous week.  We will reschedule the trip in the fall - there should be plenty of ducks in the wetlands to view.

Our first stop was the platform overlooking the wetlands.  It was already filling up with shorebirds - Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, Least Tern, Least Sandpipers, and Short-billed Dowitchers. 

The Pickering Creek dock has a classroom area for students.
This Osprey may have fledged by now.

Barn Swallows were on every dock.

There were many shoreline scenes like this one.
Nice birds spotted were Bald Eagle, Black Vultures, Kingfisher, Green Heron, and many  Great Blue Herons.  See you in the fall!
