I enjoy counting birds on Saturday and Sunday mornings at the nature center. This year we are back to 8 to 10 AM. The Saw Mill River Audubon signature bird, the Carolina wren, greeted me first thing on the first morning! And because of the efforts of Audubon groups in the area, the landfill, now meadow, has only been cut 1/3. Harriers, Lapland longspur, buntings, meadowlarks, bobolinks, are returning.
Very rewarding October trips to that dam place.
