|Black & White|
I headed down to the soccer field area and found this black & white immediately (sorry for the poor quality of the photo). Later, Haynes and Jonathan saw several of them. We ran into Ryan who showed us some Parulas high up in the tree tops, buzz buzzing away. He had seen a Veery and heard the wood thrush singing while on the path by the JCC. Also saw several brightly colored yellow-rumped warblers and caught a glimpse of the Great Crested flycatcher that Ian had seen on Friday. The orioles and yellow warblers are very vocal - singing up a storm.
|Hmmm.... what shall I have for breakfast?|
Then it was on to the invasive pull where Duane Hillis with his super human strength and special root removal tools, dug out more buckthorn in his quest for 100% removal of this pesty bush. Thanks Duane! Katherine, Jackie and I tackled a different type of formidable foe - the garlic mustard. We cleared out one whole section in between the upper and lower gardens which was most satisfying. Then we began a short stint in the overgrown path that goes to the brick house in the lower gardens. That will be an ongoing project for sure.
