On Saturday, February 3, twenty birders joined TAS field trip leader Larry Manfredi for a morning of birding along the L-31W Canal along the eastern border of Everglades National Park. Over fifty different species were seen during the three-mile round-trip hike, including Limpkin, Sandhill Crane, Wood Stork, White-tailed Kite, Sharp-shinned Hawk, Short-tailed Hawk, Pileated Woodpecker, Peregrine Falcon, Least Flycatcher, Brown-crested Flycatcher, Western Kingbird, Sedge Wren, Yellow Warbler and Painted Bunting. An eBird checklist that includes every species seen can be viewed here.
