After Walk at Banner Lakes Wildlife Area, Adams Cty

October 10, 2011

Instead of waiting a week for a bird trips to finish and getting reports, I will transcribe telephone reports of current bird trips. Amy Davenport

Bryan & Sue Ehlmann, Rebecca Kosten and Richard Stevens walked Banner Lakes Wildlife Area during the last three hours of daylight.

Their target birds were uncommon sparrows and owls. Vesper Sparrows were the most common with White-crowned Sparrows coming in second. A few Chipping Sparrows and Song Sparrows were seen along the western windbreak.

Highlight was a Field Sparrow in the northwest corner of the property.

They did find one Long-eared Owl. No Short-eared Owls were seen after sunset.
