We had a gloriously, sunny morning for 14 folks to enjoy a beginner walk. McKelvey Woods Trail is the eastern most section of the Fee-Fee Greenway.
From the parking lot, everyone had great views of Cedar Waxwings in the trees. In all, 19 species were observed. The vast number of Robins, feasting on
bush honeysuckle berries impressed everyone. I'm sure I've under-counted the Robins.
For anyone who participated and would like the eBird list shared, please email me directly.
