“Conk-la-ree! Conk-la-ree!” called the red-winged blackbirds perched on cattails in the marsh at Evergreen Lake on Sunday morning.
Perhaps these birds with their colorful markings knew they were participating in the International Dawn Chorus Day. Members of Evergreen Audubon who planned the local gathering at the lake were keenly aware of the event and its significance in the avian community.
“The first Sunday in May, birders from all over the world get together,” said Brad Andres, president of Evergreen Audubon.
