The best time to look for birds during the summer is early in the morning, because that is when birds are most active. The air is cool and comfortable and the birds are hungry for breakfast. With walk leader Nancy Guppy, we may find adults feeding babies in the nest, and fledglings begging for food while following their parents.  As always, beginning birders are welcome.  Binoculars are available to lend. Register with Catherine Pedemonti at friendsoffreshpond@yahoo.com
