Free Birding

Pine Hill Park, a natural area filled with hidden gems of vegetation, streams, habitats, and of course, birds! At 6:45 am, I arrived, the air was a brisk 45 degrees Fahrenheit and the sky didn't have a single cloud. I knew it was going to be a good birding day when the first thing I saw when I went outside this morning was a Ruby-throated Hummingbird fly right past my head. I started my journey looping through the lower, middle, and upper trials of Giorgetti park and ended up popping up on Crusher road where there was a strip of powerlines. Aside from the powerlines was an old quarry area that had a couple buildings still intact and an abundance of shrubbery. I spent the first couple hours here where I soon saw who was living around the area. The highlight of my time there was being about 10 feet away from a foraging Eastern Towhee and Chestnut-sided Warbler. Along with those two species, the woodpeckers were going to town, pecking away at a few different trees in the area. After I collected an abundance of recordings from this spot I figured it was time to continue the adventure through Pine Hill Park. Once I was in denser areas with birch, beech, witch hazel, etc. it was a bit harder to get more specific recordings of species. Regardless, today was rich in life and habitats (coniferous, deciduous, mixed, and shrubland); a great day for the birding books.
