Susquehanna Greenway Hike – Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Report by George Siatos – On January 14, 2014, six ADK members hiked the Susquehanna Greenway Trail on a drizzly day. It was redemption for the December 17, 2013 hike that was aborted after 300 yards due to snow. The trail has a host of new interpretive signs explaining natural wonders such as “Succession” and the formation of an “Oxbow.” The highlight was a small bird’s nest built just inches off the trail in the fork of a tree. After consulting with several members of the Audubon club they reached a consensus that it was an American Redstart’s nest. Spirits were passed out along with the traditional gorp and everyone went home with warm cockles of the heart.  Photograph by Julia Smith.
