On March 23rd the Duncannon Outdoor Club and Duncannon Appalachian Trail Community held another Haldeman Island hike with the great leadership of the knowledgeable Scott Bills, state games representative. We have received many emails commending Mr. Bills for his vast knowledge of waterfowl and other bird species. It was a great learning experience, viewing 16 of the 20 species of waterfowl found on the island.
We also were honored with the presence of a male and female bald eagle on their massive nest. Upon arrival we had a flock of Tundra Swan fly in formation overhead honking their way North to Canada. Scott pointed out how gracefully a swan lands in the water. There was hardly a ripple upon landing.
We hope to schedule another such event in the future, since we had such a great turnout and actually had to turn people away. If you wish to be notified of another such event email firstname.lastname@example.org and your email address will be added to the Duncannon Outdoor Club email list to received hike notifications.
