Bird Report – Sutton Village Early Spring

It was the first group hike of the season for me. I was very excited to start this series of outings and was not disappointed. The birds were singing like crazy, many species at a time, and it was so fun picking out the different songs. We were a group fo 11 including many familiar faces and some new ones too. I’m sure it was overwhelming for beginners to try to learn any bird songs today as they were coming from all sides and all at once.

Here is the list of 27 bird species that we heard or saw.

Canada Goose

American Crow

American Goldfinch

American Robin

Black-and-white Warbler

Black-capped Chickadee

Blue Jay

Brown Creeper

Common Grackle

Downy Woodpecker

Eastern Phoebe

Gray Catbird

Great Blue Heron

Green Heron

Hairy Woodpecker


Mourning Dove

Northern Cardinal

Northern Flicker

Participants’ Comment

Hello Jason,

Since the observation walk we took with you, I no longer have my morning coffee in the same way… Sitting outside and opening the Merlin app, I am amazed and a little more knowledgeable about the environment around me. Yesterday, Friday, Merlin recognized 14 different sounds, including 2 Cardinals, the Baltimore Oriole, a vireo, the Eastern Bluebird, the Eastern Phoebe, the Goldfinch, 2 Sparrows, 2 Warblers, a Woodpecker, a Nuthatch, and the Bluejay. Wonderful!

Thank you, Jason, for awakening my (our) curiosity. We will come back.

Jason, please keep us in your list of walking proposals. We will return, and again, a thousand thanks. May life be pleasant for you.

Best regards,
Louise and Jacques
