Big thanks to bird bander, Brian Pomfret and family, and to everyone who joined us on Saturday May 12 despite the cool start to the day!
Thanks also to Marion Robertson for guiding guests on the Bluebird trail.
We were very excited to see a Bobolink, a threatened species, as the fields at Crieff have been recently converted to hay to provide habitat for species such as this grassland bird.
Birds banded today at Crieff Hills:
4 House Wrens
3 Black Capped Chickadees
2 American Goldfinches
1 Grey Catbird
1 Field Sparrow
Birds seen and/or heard at Crieff Hills this morning:
