Team Notes

Participants: Jerry & Rose Payne

Weather: Clear, 100% sun, wind 0-5mph

Location: Lunacurrie, Musella, GA

Time At Location: 2 hours

Notes:
Compared to normal years there was very little bird activity either in flight or song. Of course we were not at our site during optimal birding hours and we are experiencing a severe drought which translates to very little food for the birds.

Anecdotes:
We were hampered this year by the fact that my wife (1/2 the team) was heavily medicated as she was recovering from major surgery. We had to strike off all Trogans, Bulbuls, Flamingoes and Parrotts as she was the only one to see or hear them!
