Sunday in the Walpack Valley

The pond on Thunder Mountain Rd. (part of Peter's Valley historic village) use to have lots of flooded brush and vegetation for Pied-billed Grebe. It looks like the Beavers have been too successful for us, and there doesn't seem to be enough cover for this species anymore. There is, however, some nice wet spots that are custom made for this Green Heron, a bird we've highly suspected as a breeder here in the past.

On the way out late today, Anita and I found this little scene from the downstream side of the Old Mine Rd. bridge that crosses the Big Flatbrook. The nearby area where this stream empties into the Delaware River has been a winner for this species for years.
