MacCready Preserve visit by Lynn Eckerle

We had a great walk Tuesday out at MacCready.  We got lucky with the weather, with the clouds breaking up and the sun shinning through.  And it was in the 40's.  There ended up being 11 of us.  We picked up 3 folks in the parking lot: a couple from Tecumseh and a graduate student who is going to school in Idaho.   

We didn't see a whole lot of birds, but the highlight for me was a kingfisher.  He stood out on a bare branch and gave everyone a really good view.  There were nuthatches, jays and we got pretty close to a red-bellied woodpecker.   Anyway, the rain held off until we were leaving the restaurant after lunch.  All in all it was a great walk.
