Want to learn more about some of the birds that call the Mount Vernon Trail home? The Friends of Dyke Marsh host guided bird walks every Sunday at 8 a.m. starting from the south parking lot at Belle Haven Park. Last weekend’s bird walk included multiple eagle sightings, wood ducks, bluebirds, golden crowned kinglets. and double crested cormorants. Participants also learned how to tell the difference between an American crow and a fish crow by asking one simple question. Binoculars are recommended but the guides have high powered viewing scopes that will get you a close up view. For more information visit the Friends of Dyke Marsh website.
