McNabs Island Trip – September 2013 Rachael, from the Friends of McNabs Island Society, talks to our group upon arrival on the island. Hanging out in the shade. It was a warm day! Photo by Peter. Aww… a cute little American Toad. Photo by Peter. YNC members start to fan out and explore. A toad was found right away! Rachel uses her special mirror-on-a-stick to show YNC members the inside of a swallow’s nest. Looking in more swallows’ nests. They aren’t here now, in there are lots of them in the summer! We counted 16 nests in this old building alone! YNC member finds a nest on the ground. Photo by Peter. Cool view down an old pipe! Photo by Peter.
