Westmoreland Athletic Complex:
On September 23, 2021, I joined a small group from the Mecklenburg Audubon Society for a morning of birding at the Westmoreland Athletic Complex, located in Cornelius, NC.
We also spent a little time in the adjacent McDowell Creek Greenway.
It was an enjoyable and productive morning, during which we encountered 41 avian species!
Here are a few of my favorite images from this outing:
Eastern Bluebirds squabbling; Tufted Titmouse; Carolina Chickadee; Blue-gray Gnatcatcher; Sharp-shinned Hawk; American Redstart; Carolina Wren; Brown Thrasher; House Finch; and Northern Mockingbird.
Stay safe, and have a great day!
