Mount Auburn walk bird sightings from May 9, 2021

By Peter Alden


Thank you for joining me on this walk. It was a bit breezy but trust you saw a few birds for the first time this year or in your life. The first time you see a bird well is known as a life bird for you. I enclose a list of birds and seen on our pleasant walk. I hope to see you on another outing this Spring.
