Field Trip Report: Hermit Island Oct. 21

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Twenty participants enjoyed unseasonably lovely weather at Hermit Island. The combination of Fall colors near their peak, breathtaking views and superlative birding, accentuated by multitudes of Yellow-rumped Warblers and Hermit Thrushes made for a thoroughly enjoyable walk.  (by Doug Suitor, Trip Leader)
