Bird Hike Report June 2, 2018

Huttopia/ Plein Air Sutton
26 species

The migration is mostly done here now, the birds that we hear are likely the ones that are nesting.

This is our fifth Saturday morning hike and because of the Xtrail race we did the hike at Hutopia rather than in the PENS trial. Out of the 5 hikes this was the best weather: dry and 16 degrees. We were a group of 4 Birders and were lucky to have 2 experienced birders from the Club des ornithologues de Brome-Missisquoi (www.cobm.com) Philippe Blain and Bertrand Hamel. The other 2 were myself and Tatsiana Thompson of www.BromeBirdnews.com.

Since the leaves are totally out now we heard a lot fo birds and did not see that many. One of the highlights was the scarlet tanager which we both heard and saw. I enjoyed having Ravens around us as well. I love their expressive calls. There were lots of Bluckburnian warblers singing from the tree tops though we never saw one and chestnut sided warblers. The Plein Air Sutton trails are a great place for Birding.

Only one Hike left in our series: Saturday June 9th meeting at the Hotel Horizon parking at 7am. All are welcome. $10 or $5 for PENS members.
