STOPPING TO SMELL THE FLOWERS. Most of the people on the May 21 bird walk scanned the trees, but Grace and her dad, Bill Brady, found treasure by their feet. Seventeen participated in the annual walk, led by local naturalist Ken Harte. Highlights included 1 great blue heron seen flying overhead, 2 coopers hawks, 3 eastern kingbirds, 3 bluebirds, 3 pine warblers, 1 black and white warbler, 6 scarlet tanagers, and 3 bobolinks (2 male and 1 female). Unlike most years, there were hardly any mosquitos. (Photo by Midge Eliassen)
