Bird Report – Sutton Village in the evening

Our first organized evening hike was exceptional.  We had a chance to listen to the flute-like beautiful song of the hermit thrush for as long as we liked.  After a short hike up the trail we returned to the village near the park on the route 215 to observe the American bittern and the American woodcock.  We saw and heard both of them!  The woodcock gave us a full show doing its display where it does “Peent” calls on the ground for about 2 minutes then flies straight up and does its figure 8 flight with chirping only to descend in the same place and start all over again.  He did this several times until darkness fell by 9pm and we could hardly see him! What a treat!
