Field Orno- Greenstone Hollow Nature Preserve East Granby, CT

For our last day of field ornithology I went to a small nature preserve. I arrived at 8:00 AM, which is way later than I would have liked but I had to wait for my mom to get off her overnight "on-call" shift. It was sunny and very warm all day, around 75 degrees F. While a very pretty spot with lots of wetland birds, it was rather small so there wasn't too much going on. I spotted a Canada Warbler and a Blue-headed Vireo, which was pretty exciting as they were both really pretty birds that I wasn't expecting to see. Speaking of birds I wasn't expecting to see, there was a Green Heron, one of my favorite birds that I've been looking for all week, in one of the marshes. It fished for a while before flying off. I heard some Yellow Warblers, but and some Blue-winged Warblers, but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't find them. I didn't get eyes on the Warbling Vireos I heard either but that wasn't AS sad. Since it wasn't very big and my mom hadn't had the chance to come with me yet we stopped by a pond a little down the road to see if we could find any more waterfowl, which is where we found the geese, Mallards, and Great Blue Herons and went home at 11:45 AM. It was a nice, chill, relaxing way to say goodbye to this fun class.
