What our group lacked in quantity, we made up in quality. Except for a few rain drops, our bicycling and birding trip enjoyed a cool but pleasant morning on the West Eugene Bike Path. We saw camas, wild iris, buttercups, and death camas in bloom. Our avian sightings included red-winged black bird, black-capped chickadee, crow, dunlin, goldfinch, Canada goose, great blue heron, kestrel, mallard, ring-necked pheasant, shoveler, song sparrow, barn swallow, cliff swallow, tree swallow, violet-green swallow, cinnamon teal, green-winged teal, turkey vulture, orange-crowned warbler, yellow-rumped warbler, and yellowthroat.
After the official end of our trip, we adjourned to a Thai restaurant to continue our conversations and enjoy the companionship. A big thanks to my fellow travelers who showed up and made this such a successful outing!Members: Anne Montgomery, Patricia Esch, Moshe Rapaport. Nonmembers: Carol Stern.
