Carden Alvar birds May 2015

A thrill of an American Bittern fly by.
A wonderful day with MC and Glenda at Carden.
We met some amazing people up there who willingly shared their scope with us so we could see the distant birds.

First sighting of bittern.  It was a long long ways away.


Barn Swallow

Brown Thrashers all over the place

Just a sampling of some of the birds that we saw.
