Finley Wildlife Refuge
April 14, 2002
Despite a gloomy forecast the weather turned out to be cool and sunny.
We stopped at McFadden Marsh to look at ducks, then on to the overlook were a thousand or so
Cackler Geese were still hanging around.
We hiked the Woodpecker Loop and stopped for lunch at the large deck around a beautiful oak tree.
Then we did the Mill Pond Loop where early spring flowers were blooming in the lush under story.
We saw a Bald Eagle, Osprey, Wood Duck, & blue heron.
It was a congenial group and a very pleasant day for
Donald Burton, Kent Cristoferson, Sharon Duncan, Kathy & Stewart Hoeg, Beth & Ken Kodama,
Margaret & Bill Prentice, Barbara Schomaker, Sheila Ward, and Rick Ahrens (leader).
