DCYC Amateur Naturalist Report for June 7th
The killdeer shore birds are nesting again. Avoid the area near the cone on the high road for a nest there.
We have new guests on the property — a Baltimore Oriole family!! These birds build nests in the trees thankfully. Look for a bright orange and black bird about the size of a mockingbird, coming and going from the end of a lower branch on the road side of the first large tree. That’s the male. Female similar but not as bright. Yes, it looks just like the baseball team colors and logos.
