Team Notes

Participants: Carole, Marge, Lesley, Skip, Sherry, David, Peter, Linda, Laura and Curly Joe

Weather: Awesome, not too hot and nice breezes

Location: Hanna Park in Jacksonville, Florida

Time At Location: 8:30am - 7pm

Notes:
Every opportunity to watch birds brings about a new experience. Our group watched as a Peregrine Falcon went after an Anhinga. We doubt it was trying to catch the Anhinga but you couldn't convince the Anhinga. It dove into the water and didn't come up for the longest time. Observations included a flock of five Great Blue Heron, an awesome sight. One of our favorite sightings was the Mississippi Kite. The Kite came in nice and close giving us all a good look.
