Kit Carson Park Field Trip – May 19, 2018

Twenty birders took part in the walk on a cool and overcast day that made bird identification difficult.  We heard many Yellow-breasted Chats, but saw none.  The best sighting was of a family of House Wrens tending to their chicks in a nest hole in a tree.

We saw or heard 52 species on the main walk, but several in the group continued on to the “Panhandle” area of the park, so there may be additions to the list.  Please send any photos from the walk you are willing to share with our members to
