(Photo of Common Yellowthroat ...) June Bird Walk - Zeloski Marsh

Officially, this one was rained out. It was coming down quite a bit at walk time. Karen Etter Hale and Brad Webb were at Zeloski anyway in case someone showed up. Someone did! We weren't going to bird the trails in this weather. However, since the person who braved the rain had never been to Zeloski before we did walk to an overlook and explained the lay of the land. We spent a few minutes there and saw a small number of birds. So, since we walked perhaps 20 or 30 yards and saw a few species, we present a list of birds seen, below. Thanks to Karen for her diligence in putting together an e-Bird record for this shortest of walks. We will schedule another at Zeloski in the future.

If you didn't ignore the rain for this walk, we hope you can join us for an upcoming one. You never know what you might miss if you aren't part of the walk group!

Below is a complete list of bird species identified.
