Team Notes

Participants: one participant

Weather: sunny - from 50 to high 70 degree - slight wing in the afternoon

Location: Henderson park - DeKalb County - Georgia

Time At Location: 7:30/10:45am 12:45/2:15pm 4:00/5:15pm and 6:45/7:15pm

Notes:
The weather was too nice, but it was still a beautiful day to be outside. It was ok for a first try. There was 12 warbler species sighted around the park but only 7 in my circle. 39 species were sighted before 10:45am. As usual the rest of the day did not bring a lot of new species. It has been the same story on previous big sits at my house a few miles away from the park. Interesting birds: Red-breasted Nuthatch (seems to be a small invasion year), Swamp Sparrow (fots for the park), a Cooper's Hawk chasing a Kingfisher, and a Red-shouldered Hawk diving at a Red-tailed Hawk for over 10 minutes.
