Trail & Bird Sighting Info
All trails are open.
A Pileated Woodpecker was seen from the Towpath Trail.
Birds seen today include: Chestnut-sided Warbler, Great-crested Flycatcher, Eastern Pewee, Wood Duck, Mallard, Green-winged Teal, Blue-winged Teal, Great Egret, Great Blue Heron, and Green Heron.
A Hickory Horned Devil caterpillar was found on the ground near a sycamore. At about 5 inches long, it was most likely the last instar looking for a place to pupate, preparing to spend the winter in the ground.
The Snowy Egret continues to be seen, along with Great Egrets, Great Blue Heron and Green Herons.
In the mud flats, look for Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Solitary Sandpiper, Semipalmated Sandpiper, and Killdeer.
A Snowy Egret is at the south end of the lake along with several Great Egrets.
