Whipps Ledges and Hinckley Reservation field trip July 14, 2007

Species Photos
The day started out cool but a Junco was singing from the top of an evergreen tree. Fourteen people joined in the fun as we trudged up and down Whipps Ledges. We were treated to several sightings of male and female Hooded Warblers.
After an exhirating hike through the Ledges lead by Gabe Leidy and Terri Martincic, we drove to the Johnson's Picnic Area where we found two Yellow-billed Cuckoos in the parking lot. Our species list picked up quite a bit at Johnsons. See list below
