Blue-winged Warbler - Kendall - © Kimberly Sucy - May 21, 2017

On the east side, Powder Mills Park is a mature woodland park that can be productive for many species of late migrating or nesting warblers and other songbirds.  Blue-winged Warbler, Baltimore Oriole, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Scarlet Tanager, Pileated Woodpecker and Red-tailed Hawk have all nested there in the past couple years.

The trip will continue with a visit to the BANC Sanctuary on Railroad Mills Road, where we’ll walk the trails round the woodland, wetland and creek habitats.  Nesting species there include Eastern Bluebird, House Wren, Eastern Phoebe and Screech-Owl, and adjacent treelines have produced a variety of migrating warblers.

Meet at the Powder Mills Park Fish Hatchery parking lot on Park Road at 7:30 a.m.
