PHOTO DAY - Purdon Fen and Showy Lady's Slippers with Tony Beck

Tuesday Jun 19 7:30 am

There was a relatively small group today - Tony, Nina, Josh, Pavel, Antonia, Al and myself.  We met at Andrew Haydon Park and carpooled from there.  Once again, Al insisted on driving me.

The highlight of the day was the showy lady's slippers which were in full bloom.  We also had great views of a Broad-winged Hawk and several warblers.

On the way back, we stopped at the burnt lands and got 5 species of sparrow.

Later in the afternoon, I had a Hooded Merganser with 5 chicks at Andrew Haydon Park pond.
