As I am currently leading nature walks six days a week, one would think that Sundays would be spent relaxing at home.
However at 6 am this morning I couldn’t resist a trip to the Spit. Maybe I would hear or even spot an American Woodcock. Perhaps one of those winter owls would still be around.
Not a woodcock or owl to be seen, but I did see many bird species and get some photos.
I don’t lead many nature walks at the spit because 1) it is closed to the public except in the evening on weekdays and 2) it involves a great deal of walking.
I have solved problem #2 by loading my bike into the trunk of my car and driving to the park entrance. After that, it is a very pleasant ride and I can explore all the little pathways.
Here are some the birds that I encountered on this lovely spring morning.
There is probably a singing Song Sparrow about every 25 meters.
