Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve Bird Survey

Thanks to everyone who came out for the October 15, 2019 Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve Bird Survey. Not much diversity but the Red-shouldered Hawk gripping a pigeon for breakfast and a large flock of munias were fun to watch. A recently birthed copperhead had us stopped on the trail for some photos.
