For September’s Third Saturday Bird walk, we explored the north region of Mt. Pisgah. Dennis Arendt was our leader. I was particularly looking forward to this walk, as I had never birded the area before.
The dozen and a half who gathered on this cool and lovely morning included several new birders and even a pair from out of state! Birds were not plentiful, but twenty-nine species were identified, by sight and/or by ear. A possible Pileated Woodpecker was heard, though not seen. One major highlight was a Great Horned Owl, spotted as it flew in for a landing. It remained in sight for as long as anyone cared to view it.
