Field Observation 7: Burlington College

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 from 10:50 am to 2 pm

Today was very warm and sunny, with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees F. I went towards the waterfront and explored the newly designated natural space around the old Burlington College campus. I started at the community gardens near North Street. Immediately, I heard a Carolina Wren calling to his partner, and was amazed to find him singing in a tree less than 20 feet from where I was standing. After allowing me to watch him for several minutes, he flew away and my eyes were drawn to a flicker of movement in a nearby snag. I was delighted to see a Pileated Woodpecker excavating a nest cavity in the snag!! I then continued on my walk, finding an Eastern Phoebe, American Robin, Northern Cardinal, and Tufted Titmouse, along with the songs of several birds I was unable to identify. Sadly, my phone was dead so I was unable to record their songs for later identification.
