Team Notes

Participants: Just my self on my back deck

Weather: The weather was beautiful--clear and sunny-temp 50-65F

Location: my back deck of the house-large wooded backyard with feeders

Time At Location: started at 4:00am-no owls!! off and on until 7:00pm

Notes:
This was my first time--it was great fun but next time I will get a group together and relocate where there are more species of birds. Count me in for next year.

Anecdotes:
Although my species number was lower than I anticipated, seeing a yellow billed cucko and a hermit thrush was well worth the time spent.
