Location: Glendale Baptist Church campus, high on the hill.

Time At Location: 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Eastern bluebirds galore, in and out of the martin house. Fewer soaring birds than expected. Hoping for 30 species; got 28. Big misses were: Eastern phoebe, black vulture, cedar waxwing, and any sparrow. Forty (40) in a day would be an ultimate goal. Maybe next year. This was the first meeting of a church bird club. It won't be the last.
