Our February 4 walk in the Scrub started off blustery and cold. There were nine of us to explore the scrub plants and wildlife and though we thought there would be little wildlife to observe, as soon as the sun came out, the birds were singing all around us. In fact, a few of us were lucky to spot a Ruby-crowned Kinglet and all of us were able to see the colorful Pine Warblers foraging in the pine trees and a particularly colorful male cardinal. We could hear Red-bellied woodpeckers, Red-shouldered hawks and plenty of Chickadees and Towhees in the bushes. In spite of the cold start, it really was a beautiful day for a walk. I was especially impressed with the knowledge of the group in general and very impressed with their desire to learn more about the scrub and the plants and animals that live there. We had a great time!
Thanks to Luz Kraujalis for her pictures and impressive history of the area!
