Avalon Nature Walk Recap

Oct 26, 2021 | Nature Walks

The walk last week was at Avalon Preserve at Stony Brook. It was a nice crisp fall morning, with bright sunshine and colors starting to show. Eleven folks showed up for our morning walk. We were greeted by Ruby-crowned Kinglets right on the preserve’s beginning walkway. The folks that care for the preserve are doing a great job not only in maintaining but also in improving the paths, woods, walkways, and it is always worth a walk.

We saw and heard 27 species of birds during our 2.5 hour walk. Kinglets and Sparrows were everywhere. We heard the resident Bobwhite Quail in the upper fields. As usual in the fall Yellow-rumped Warblers were everywhere also. At the end of our walk we were met by a very cooperative Grey Catbird who posed for pictures.
