Franklin Park


Right around the corner is an open drainage area surrounded by trees, bushes and a considerable pond. While the selection of birds may be some what limited, the convenience and accessibility make it a great place to make a quick stop off on the way home from work. Jeanette and I wandered in on our first Spring as “birders” and saw our first Yellow-rumped Warbler(s), an energetic Brown Thrasher, a tan-striped White-throated Sparrow and a composed, resting Turkey Vulture. Yellow Warblers (Jeanette’s first) were also seen.
