Yesterday I volunteered at the Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge counting ducks. It was great fun. Soon as I arrived there was an Osprey flying over. Species we counted were Shoveler, GW & BW Teal, Mallard, Black, Pintail. There were also couple GB Herons. FOY Warblers for me, Yellow-rumpted and Prairie. Heard GB Gnatcatchers. 4 Speices of Swallows flying right in front of us. Lots of Beaver sign along the river. Later on I heard my first Very up in the Co. Park.
Today I walked a dog up in a field, and what did I hear and see? 2 Meadowlarks! It's been years since I've last seen one.
