I'm behind again on posting about hiking. This hike was done March 24. I returned to Cumberland Marsh Natural Area - always a good spot to see birds and even other wildlife (such as two raccoons in the distance foraging in the marsh). This time, I did a 4.4 mile out and back with a loop portion that went through the forest
but also had nice wetland views.
I walked the loop counter-clockwise. Here is a topographic map view and a satellite image view of the hike. Arrows show the direction hiked.
I observed 14 species of birds on the hike, the coolest being the majestic bald eagle (two of them):
Some other wildlife that observed along the way were the white-throated sparrow (oh, such a beautiful, sweet song they have),
the silver spotted skipper,
and the falcate orange wingtip.
This is becoming one of my favorite places for a short hike when I don't have time to get to the mountains. Can you see why?
