Saucon Valley Naturalist: Dozens of Bird Species Can Be Heard Along Trail

The big focus of the morning was to listen for birds, and even during my short stroll I was able to hear around 27 common species. Here is the list.

Introducing a New Column: Saucon Valley Naturalist

Hello! My name is Bob Andreucci and I am a science teacher, arborist and all-around nature enthusiast. I started my career nearly 25 years ago as a science teacher in New York. I left teaching to join Bartlett Tree Experts as an arborist and biologist, where I stayed for 17 years. I am now back in the classroom teaching biology, chemistry and environmental science at the high school level, and I love it.
