Saturday, April 25 - Quakertown Swamp in Sellersville, Pennsylvania (17:20 - 18:50)

Birds were observed from 17:20 - 18:50 on Saturday, April 25 at Quakertown Swamp in in Sellersville, Pennsylvania. The weather was 64 degrees F and partly cloudy with little wind. Quakertown swamp is a wetland that is 518 acres in area. The wetland includes areas of open water, wet meadows, and forested swamps. The forested swamps contained mostly deciduous trees. Quakertown swamp features a Great Blue Heron rookery, which may be one of the largest in Eastern Pennsylvania.

Over the course of my time at Quakertown Swamp, I observed 1 Mourning Dove, 1 White-breasted Nuthatch, and 1 Black-capped Chickadee by the edge of a forested area next to the parking lot. I saw 13 Great Blue Herons in the rookery. Most of these herons were standing in nests, high in trees in the wetland. At least 15 Red-winged Blackbirds were seen throughout the wetland, and many of them were heard calling. 5 Common Grackles were seen in trees near the edge of the wetland, and a few of them were heard calling. 1 Turkey Vulture was seen soaring over the wetland. 1 Mallard was seen in a small stream near the wetland, and 1 Northern Cardinal was seen flying near this stream. Finally, 1 Osprey was seen perched in a tree near the edge of the wetlands.
