Sunny morning at ~ 39F at the start ~51F at the end. Nine of us started at the Queen Road entrance of Long Lake Park walking south on the trail uphill to the meadow just west of the cell tower, then west on the AT&T easement trail to the flooded section and returned to the Queen Road entrance following the trail bordering the Lake’s south shore. Northern harrier, fish crows, 3 species of warblers. (full list)

Rolling Meadows

We could hear the flights of several woodcocks. Ground calls were sparse and there were only a few visual flights. (full list)

Rolling Meadows
March 28, 2017
We braved the cold, wet rain in wait for Woodcocks and we were not disappointed. Despite a steady rain, and, 40F temps we had nice, if wet, views from the roadside at the entrance to Rolling Meadows. (full list)
