Hi all-

My dad and I took a hike this morning at Trout Brook Valley  
Conservation Area on the Easton/Weston border. We were pleasantly  
surprised to find a nice array of breeding birds. Our hike started at  
the end of Elm Dr in Easton and took us through the deciduous forest  
of the Crow Hill Preserve, before ending in the Orchard and it's nice  
variety of field edge species. It was a wonderful morning for a hike  
at such a nice area.
