Heron and Egret

Good Morning,
It went really well. It didn’t rain and was still sunny when I was there. The actual 25th Anniversary event had been postponed to October, but me and my dad still got to walk some trails and did some birdwatching. I actually had a lot more fun this time than the last time I was at the refuge because the weather was better and I got to see a lot more creatures. We got to see a great blue heron, egrets, and some killdeer at the Cussetah Bottoms Trail. Also, I couldn’t get over how many butterflies and spiderwebs there were (see pics)! 


Here’s a list of birds we’ve seen or heard:
Great Blue Heron
Great Egret
Carolina Wren
Red-headed Woodpecker
White-eyed Vireo
Red-shouldered Hawk
Downy Woodpecker
American Crow
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Pileated Woodpecker
Turkey Vulture (see pic)
Tufted Titmouse
Carolina Chickadee


Attached are the pictures I took yesterday. Enjoy!
