Every day, I have a Crow that flies by my office window.   Somedays two or three friends join him and other days he has a reunion and is joined by 100 or so Crows.   I will hear the tell-tale caw caw sound, look up from my computer and see them resting in the Magnolia and Apple trees outside the Mansion.  It’s an impressive sight indeed.

Tarrywile is alive with birds and is home to over 80 species.  From the Crow to the lesser known American Redstart, Veery or the Ovenbird, if you look around you will see them flying about.

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology has a great site to help you identify what you might spot out there!  Check out https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/browse/shape  it is a great site to identify birds if you are unsure of just what you are looking at.    So bring some binoculars and take a chance next time you are in the Park to try and spot some of our feathered friends.

Until next time remember;  leave no trace, respect wildlife, leash your dog, leave what you find, respect fellow park users, always be prepared but most importantly enjoy all Tarrywile has to offer.
