Team Notes

Participants: S. Marty, Ann, Mike

Weather: 70 degrees, partly cloudy, light wind

Location: Cemetery of Sisters of Charity Motherhouse Mt. St. Joseph, Ohio

Time At Location: 8 a.m to 8:30 p.m.

Notes:
We had a beautiful day. Very large flocks of Grackles and other black birds surrounded our watch area throughout the day. The surprise bird to end our count was one late Chimney Swift. Early morning and late evening provided hundreds of American Robins.

Anecdotes:
This was the first sit on the cemetery grounds and it was great having a number of people stop by as they were out walking and wondering what we were doing on the top of the hill. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed meeting many wonderful people. Thanks for the opportunity.
