The Chickadee Trail

This morning there were lots of Black-capped Chickadees along the trail east of Henry Marsh, as well as the regular White-breasted and Red-breasted Nuthatches, Blue Jays, a couple Purple Finch, American Goldfinch, and a single Dark-eyed Junco. A Downy and a Hairy Woodpecker were also seen, but no sign of the American Tree Sparrows that had been hanging around, and no Owl. A few days ago someone had written “OWL” in the snow near the dip in the trail, but we haven’t seen it...probably one of the resident Barred Owls checking around the bird feeders for mice.

The trail is single file, hard packed, snowshoes not needed. Take Beaumont Dr. to Henry Rd. for trail access...when you walk out to Henry Marsh, at the “T” in the trail, turn left for The Chickadee Trail. You can also access the trail from Kerr Park by using the snowmobile trail if not too busy, or the safer snowshoe/ski trail through the woods (not hard packed yet). Remember to take some sunflower seeds for the birdfeeders, and if you want to try and hand feed some chickadees, we find that chopped unsalted peanuts usually work best. (Bracebridge)
