Great Start to Lark in the Park 2015

AnnAndScreetchOwlThe first day of the Catskills Lark in the Park 2015 was rainy and raw, causing some events to be postponed or cancelled.  The would-be Pepacton paddlers headed instead to Woodchuck Lodge with hopes of clearing weather and a late afternoon paddle after getting an up close look at many wonderful birds.  We didn’t get to paddle, but we had a great time seeing and learning about Great Horned Owls, Barred Owls, Barn Owls, Screetch Owls, Red Tail Hawks, Broad Wing Hawks and Kestrels.  A couple of us even got a turn holding owls!

The weather couldn’t have been nicer for Sunday’s events….here are a few pictures from the bird program and the Shavertown Trail Hike.  Here is Annie Mardiney, Wildlife Rehabilitator with a few of her charges:
