It's also home to the Fort Smallwood Hawk Watch , run by the indefatigable Sue Ricciardi.
We thought it would be a great place to introduce our dear friends Louis and Vencka Peterson to the joys and challenges of birding. They were game, and we had a lovely morning walk, led by Ranger Matt Gray. (Matt's a great birder, good guy and his bird list for the park is in excess of 200).
Fort Smallwood didn't disappoint. We had Scarlet Tanager, Wilson's Warbler, American Redstart, three Black-Crowned Night Herons, Great-Crested Flycatcher, Broad-Winged Hawk, Orchard Oriole and much more....
BirdCouple will post Louis' pictures soon. Meanwhile, we are off to Keswick Hall in the morning to help do a bird survey of the property.
TOO MUCH FUN!
