Birding at Sandy Creek Park

I decided to join the Wake Audubon bird walk at Sandy Creek Park in Durham at the last minute on a Sunday morning.  What a lovely place and quite birdy. We spotted many Great Blue Herons on the pond and in a roost atop some pines, what we can only guess was a Female Common Merganser, Wood Ducks, Mallards (to our disappointment), Red Wing Blackbirds, a Tree Swallow, but best of all, a special appearance and subsequent performance by a Prothonotary Warbler who landed in a tree right in front of us. Very nice experience and I will look forward to trying out Sandy Creek again, but next time I will remember bug spray.  I got some awesome chigger bites to remember it by. But worth it for two lifers!
