A MacGillivray’s Warbler was seen high up in a tall tree near the trail at the start of the walk. We watched a Downy Woodpecker feeding on the trunks of a tree close by, giving us great views. We saw several Brown Creepers climbing up the trunks of trees throughout the morning. We heard Northern Flickers, a Pileated Woodpecker and a Red-breasted Sapsucker during the walk..
