Team Notes

Participants: Corey Husic, Joren Husic, Dave Husic, and Diane Husic

Weather: sunny, turning cloudy later; temp: 38-63F

Location: Kunkletown, PA

Time At Location: 4:30am-9:30pm

Notes:
Lots of great birds! We had some great Sharp-shinned Hawks that passed right over the sitting spot. A pair of Tennessee Warblers was a great way to start the morning. A flock of Purple Finches, and later a Pileated Woodpecker were two "late day suprises." Our first bird of the day was a Hermit Thrush, calling as it flew over at 4:30am, and the last bird, a Peregrine Falcon that flew past the sitting spot while the sun was setting.
