Birding Frankfort


Noelle's Mom drove down to Kentucky from the frigid, frozen tundra of Wisconsin last yesterday. Since the weather here in central Kentucky was a balmy 33 degrees today (balmy when compared to Wisconsin) we decided we had to get out of the house and enjoy the nice weather. We headed north towards Frankfort where we visited the Buckley Wildlife Sanctuary, a National Audubon Society site. There we spied on some birds in the bird blind, then hiked the trails there.

The scenery was interesting, lots of karst sinkholes, but nothing really spectacular. From Buckley we headed into Frankfort and Cove Springs Park. There we hiked the Overlook Trail and a short boardwalk into a wetland area.
We hadn't even realized before that this separate section of the park existed.
