Team Notes

Participants: Dan & Laurie Mooney, Elaine Abbot, Joan Brown, Dee Baum, Sissy Miller, Shawn Miller, Ann Smith, Joyce Bennett, Allison Wilkes

Weather: Sunny, 50-78F, Breezy from late morning till dark

Location: Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge 32.60648N 092.04541W

Time At Location: 7:00am to 7:00pm

Notes:
Good day with great weather. It was a nice way to wind down National Wildlife Refuge week. As expected, we got most of our birds by 10:00am. The wind picked up shortly after ten and as a result we had to 'work' much harder for new species the rest of the day. The BirdNerds would like to thank the Friends of Black Bayou and the Northeast Louisiana Bird Club for their help and support. It was great to have such good company in the circle!

Anecdotes:
Did not see a great blue heron until after 6:00PM.
