EMX to Wetlands

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
Leader: Tom Rundle
Hike: 8.4 miles, 40 ft (Moderate)

Cool autumn day with high clouds and a few sun breaks. Leaves turning from green to orange and gold. We departed the EMX at Sam Reynolds station and walked about 4 miles through the wetlands out to the corner of Royal Avenue and Green Hill road. This included a 0.6 mile loop along a narrow foot path. We saw some interesting birds including a Great Blue Heron, Cooper's Hawk, Red Tailed Hawk, Kite, Western Meadow Larks, Juncos, Song Sparrows, a large formation of Canada Geese and the usual Crows and Turkey Vultures. We also saw at least of half-dozen other wetland bird species we couldn't identify.

Members: Tom Rundle, Leigh Williams, David Lodeesen.
