CMBO Villas WMA walk- 11/11/07

Below is a list, sent to me by George Meyers, of species seen on the CMBO Villas WMA walk, yesterday, 11/11.

EDIT: Just noticed that George provided some photos of the imm. Red-headed woodpecker and the flock of rusty blackbirds observed on the Villas WMA walk. Enjoy!

"Highlights from the Villas WMA Walk this morning 11/11.

Good numbers of American Goldfinches and American Robins but the big highlight was at least 60 Rusty Blackbirds!
