Team Notes

Participants: Erin Eve, Tracy Eve, Lisa B. Garrett, Sherry Tomlinson, Guy Moody, Ian Moody

Weather: 50s-70s, clear skies, bright day

Location: Patuxent Research Refuge, Laurel, MD, overlooking field, with woods on one side and ponds in the distance

Time At Location: 7:30am to 2:30pm

We placed this circle within a few hundred yards of the other circle (the “Herons”) at the Patuxent Research Refuge. Ours was in a “birdier” location, but we didn’t have many more species than the Visitor Center circle. Fortunately, we had a number of parents with their kids visit us, sometimes people who were “sent” to us by the participants at the other circle. Many of these visiting kids already knew a lot about birds!
