Team Notes

Participants: Lilly Crane

Weather: sunny, unseasonable warm

Location: backyard

Time At Location: observed intermittantly between 8 A.M. and 4 P.M.

Notes:
Weather has been unusually warm and dry. 3 days prior to Sunday I had my last Ruby Throated Hummingbird at my feeder - much later than normal. I think the Big Sit is a great idea - you can do it at home at your leisure when all else fails.

Anecdotes:
The first bird I saw on Sunday was the Sharp Shinned Hawk sitting at the edge of the swimming pool (now shut down for the winter) I have seen this hawk off and on during the summer at the pool or perched on the pool fence. First year for this occurance. It is a juvenile as best as I can tell.
