Bob and I drove to our local Audubon Center, located in Jamestown NY, yesterday afternoon. We walked a little more than 2 miles. I surprised Bob when I chose to walk as far as we did. I surprised myself too!
If you click here, you will find a map of the trails at the Audubon Center. We began our walk on the blue Overlook Trail.
Leaving the Blue Heron Overlook we took a connecting trail to the yellow Big Pond Trail.
We took the yellow Big Pond Trail alongside the Bluebird Field.
What we didn’t see that I had hoped to see was a bluebird in the Bluebird Field.
Soon we came to a bridge.
Soon after crossing over Hemlock Bridge, we walked the orange Spatterdock Trail that circles Spatterdock Pond. We made our way to a tower that looks out on Big Pond via Spatterdock and a connecting trail. We walked along the top end of Spatterdock Pond.
Leaving the tower we used a connecting trail, Spatterdock Trail, and a small part of the Overlook Trail to make our way back to the parking lot.
No trip to the Audubon Center would be complete without visiting Liberty. So, we visited her enclosure on our way back to the parking lot.

Beautiful photos… I love traveling with you two… What a neat trail and area. You saw lots of birds… Liberty is a beauty…
What a great walk, and good for you for walking so far. The red-winged blackbirds look huge! I also like the pine warbler and the tree swallow. Your pictures are beautiful! We have an Audubon Center not too far from home. We’ve visited once, but your post reminds me to go again.
Looks like a great place for walk and birding. Wonderful sightings and captures of the birds. Take care, enjoy your weekend.
A wonderful walk, you saw some great sights! Loved each and every photo! I surprise Gregg too on some of our walks. I dropped off to sleep as soon as I got in the house the other day and felt every part of my body, but it was well worth going around one of our favorite nature reserves.
Even though you didn’t see everything you had hoped to see, Linda, I really enjoyed the colorful warbler photos and that tree root was spectacular. Two miles was a respectable distance to have walked and hopefully none was up hill, my least favorite walking.
There were no hills to navigate.
Forgot to add that even in captivity, Liberty is a magnificent bird, and a great photo subject as well.
I love visiting Liberty 🙂
