Team Notes

Participants: Gordon West, Janet McNew, JC Luoto, Irene Luoto, Sara Dorland

Weather: overcast and windy

Location: Bandon Marsh Wildlife Refuge

extreme high tide precluded our seeing numerous shore birds as we have in the past. high cold winds also seemed to reduce the number of birds we have seen before. conspicuously absent were raptors, especially a golden eagle we have seen every year at the big sit.
