Team Notes

Participants: We had 10 aduls and three childres

Weather: Beautiful, sunny and 75 degrees

Location: Fresno California Woodward Park

Time At Location: 6:30am to 5:30pm

We had a great time. Everyone saw at least one lifer. Mine was a Black-throated Gray Warbler. A friends was a Green Heron and a Brown Creeper. Most action happened in the early morning as usual but the Warblers, Bushtits and Kinglets picked up teir activity around lunchtime. There wa a cheater though, he flew over in a Hot Air Balloon trying to get a leg up on us seeing the birds from the sky. All those in the park took notice of our circle and some started to report their bird sightings to us in other parts of the park, we kindly said thank you and invited them on future walks. Again we had a great time, Thank You! Michael Ruffino
