Bolton Flats WMA

The Forbush Bird Club had a great trip through Bolton Flats WMA this morning. 12 birders got some amazing looks at a Peregrine Falcon,  Lincoln’s Sparrows, White-crowned Sparrows, Magnolia Warbler, and lots of others. The wind picked up throughout the trip making it difficult to find birds later, but overall it was a great morning.
