St. Josephs Nature Walk Recap

Oct 8, 2021 | Nature Walks

While the group was gathering we were treated to aerial combat between a pair of Cooper’s Hawks, a Peregrine Falcon and over thirty American Crows. A spectacular way to start our morning. eleven folks showed up on a dreary overcast morning to check out the property. The Sisters of St Joseph Brentwood campus has an ongoing program to improve the natural environment on the grounds. It is fast becoming a great place to enjoy being outdoors.

We had twenty two species of birds. Eastern Phoebes were everywhere and on the wood trail we had a nice mix of woodland birds, Yellow Rumps, Golden Crowned Kinglet, Black-capped Chickadees, Golden Crowned Kinglet and a Brown Creeper.
