Birds of a Feather
Bird-lovers flocked together on Saturday, May 15, 2021, after a long hiatus due to the Covid pandemic, here at Oak Hills Park's woodland trail. Regional bird guide Chris Bosak led us on an enchanting morning during spring migration.
Because of popular demand, we added a second Bird Watching Trail Walk so that we could accommodate and welcome approx. 40 guests to experience the quiet and beauty of nature. We spotted a number of migrating birds, although they tended to be a bit elusive in the canopy. We did hear many of their bird songs and calls.
Chris gave a presentation on Thursday, May 13, through Norwalk Public Library, about our native birds which was well-attended. His photos are outstanding, capturing birds in their daily lives, and he interspersed his talk with recordings of birdsong.
On behalf of the Oak HIlls Park Nature Advisory Committee, we gave Chris Bosak a thank-you gift of a beautiful birdhouse which detaches from a display with fairy garden.
