Audibles and Edibles Walk – 4/27/19

Audibles and Edibles’ Trip report-4/27/19

On a just rainy and chilly morning, Kat Conte and Ernie Harris accompanied by Dorina Ademi and Rick Reed had a nice introduction to Burnt Hill Park off East Street in Hebron. The nutritious plants were plentiful. The birds less so but enjoyable- walk up view of Tree Swallow and a broken egg on the ground which Rick ID’d as a Killdeer’s and right away we came upon a pair trying to lure us away. We left just as the park was filling with a crowd for ‘Baseball Opening Day”.
