Notes:
Although we enjoyed pleasant temperatures during our morning count, the sun did not shine long enough for bugs to become active and attract any of the warblers we know are in the area. It was not a great birding moring, but we sure did enjoy the company, coffee, quiche, and cake.

Anecdotes:
In addition birds, our morning count included: 5- female deer 1- giant swallowtail 1- tiger swallowtail 1- gulf fritillary 2- zebra longwing 1- cloudless sulphur
