Soldier's Delight Bird Walk

Eleven participants in a Chesapeake Audubon field trip experienced the surprise and pleasure of watching a SANDHILL CRANE as it flew east across the power cut as we watched from the south side of Serpentine (white) Trail. 

The birding overall was somewhat slow, but we managed to hit a nice pocket in the more varied bushy and wooded strip at the bottom. We enjoyed the active and singing Pine Warblers, as well as Black-Throated Green, Redstart, and other warblers. Good looks at a Pileated Woodpecker and at a Broad-Winged and a Red-Shouldered Hawk flying near each other. Also Yellow-Throated and White-Eyed Vireos.

Very enjoyable walk in a unique environment.
