Sunday Bird Walk, July 08 2018
The Sunday bird walk went to Hemer Park in Cedar. We had great views of a Swainson's Thrush singing from a tree near the trail.  Swainson's Thrush, Yellow Warbler and Orange-crowned Warblers were singing throughout  the morning.  A Western Wood Pewee was spotted perched on a branch just off the trail. Three Cedar Waxwings flew over the viewing platform.  We spotted Mallards, Wood Ducks and a Hooded Merganser on the water of the pond.
