03/20/11 – Vanderbilt Mansion Hike

Common Merganser (female)

The hiking doesn’t stop this weekend!  The next spot that I went to was Vanderbilt Mansion.  Specifically, we went down to Bard Rock by the river to see what was down there.

On the way there, I heard and saw both a tufted titmouse and a white-breasted nuthatch.  On the river, there was only a pair of common mergansers, which quickly took off soon after arriving.  Thankfully, I acted quickly and got this photo.

There were a few other sightings, which are included in the list below:

  1. Common Merganser
  2. Red-tailed Hawk
  3. Red-bellied Woodpecker
  4. American Crow
  5. Tufted Titmouse
  6. White-breasted Nuthatch
  7. Eastern Bluebird
  8. American Robin
