Birding 101


4/23/19- Our first class of the spring met in the classroom and then ventured out to the ISU Horticulture Center. It was nice to see some familiar faces and some new ones for me to corrupt as well.Here is a list of some of the birds that we saw: American Robin, Common Grackle, Red-winged Blackbird, Turkey Vulture, Northern Flicker, Tree Swallow, Barn Swallow, Northern Rough-winged Swallow, Swamp Sparrow, Palm Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Yellow Warbler and a Sora was also spotted. I always have enjoyed this class and this session seems like it won’t disappoint. Next week we will meet at Ewing Park in the parking lot off of Ethel Parkway. If you have any questions, contact me via text or call @ (309) 530-3234
