The bird sanctuary area at the Buffalo Creek Trail just keeps getting better and better. We’ve planted dozens of trees, shrubs and perennials that will provide nectar for hummingbirds and insects as well as berries for our other birds. Our Buffalo Creek eBird hotspot now has 139 bird species reported, topping the lists of Carroll County hotspots. With the continued addition of birdhouses and food foraging plants, we expect to see those number rise.
This week’s work day had to be cancelled due to wet conditions, but last week volunteers continued the removal of privet from the bird sanctuary and also spent part of the morning cutting and removing limbs that had fallen into the creek. These hinder the flow of the water, causing it to back up during a heavy rain and adding to erosion problems. It’s a constant battle to keep the creek flowing as smoothly as possible.
