Trumpeter Swan

Trumpeter Swan


Hi Everyone, As of Tuesday, May 5, 2015 there has been a Trumpeter Swan in the Dredge Cell Pond. I have not been able to put it on the Sightings Database because I still need to create a species write-up for it. I will update this message when the swan leaves, so if you are still seeing this message, it's still here. Thank you!

Fall migration has begun

Fall migration has begun


Though it is still summer, the birds are already preparing for their long journeys south. Northern breeding warblers are starting to be observed around the park, as well as flycatchers, terns and gulls. If you see anything of interest out in the park, please leave us a note in the outside kiosk or on the inside sightings list. Thank you!
