I spent a pleasant morning at Chatfield Hollow State Park in Madison this morning, seeing 29 species including several migrants.

Sightings included Bald Eagle, Brown Creeper, singing Winter Wren, Red-breasted Nuthatch and one Chipping Sparrow.  Numerous Eastern Phoebes were seen and the sounds of Pine Warblers were heard often, with a few birds seen as well.  No Waterthrushes yet, but it won’t be long…!!

Please note that the boardwalk is still closed, due to the pandemic.  A park employee thinks that may be changing soon – I hope so!!
