Team Notes

Participants: Ron Arvidson, Bonnie McOrmand, Sharon Clark. Peter Feidstein, Jean Blanchard and Fiep de Bie

Weather: Sunny fall day 53 degrees F/11 C becoming overcast w/ rain at 3:00 PM

Location: South Melville, Prince Edward Island, CANADA

Time At Location: 8:00 AM until 3 PM

Notes:
This was a fine fall day. Unfortunately, a good part of our migration has passed through over the past three weeks with many of the warblers and sparrows being more numerous before the Sit. There were still a few to be seen and some still local but not seen from the circle. Also, some of the usual suspects - eg. Boreal Chickadees and Woodpeckers, just didn't want to participate!

Anecdotes:
An amusing incident occured when we re-located to the kitchen for lunch and left our circle abandoned temporarily. We looked out to see the Goldfinches giving our scopes and chairs a thorough inspection - perhaps to assure that we were properly equiped!
