Millwood Lake 10/24/2009

Samantha and I joined 6 other intrepid birders to brave the blue skies and mild temperatures and bird Millwood Lake Saturday morning.  We started Beard’s Bluff Recreational Area, then moved to the state park to search for the Rock Wren that Charles Mills had discovered (found it), then to Beard’s Lake for a mosquito survey, and finally a wrap up back at Beard’s Bluff.  We didn’t cover a lot of ground but we had a full day of lovely weather and my pedometer read 19,000 steps by the end of the day.

Here are some images from the day or go here for my recent images.
