This year’s walk was held on May 12th, 7-9 AM, at the Whistle Stop Trial in Farmington.  The weather was excellent: cold but calm winds, bright sun and early foliage permitting easy sighting of birds. About 12 hardy souls attended the walk which was lead by Steve Bien.  Steve Muise and his wife Debbie helped guide, and Steve took the pictures posted here.
