Team Notes

Participants: Bruce Krucke

Weather: perfect--48° to 74° no wind--clear and sunny all day

Location: front deck--7352 Toogoodoo rd, Yonges Island, SC

Time At Location: 8:00 am till 6:00 pm with a break in mid afternoon

Notes:
The best thing was seeing red-breasted nuthatches for the first time ever in my yard--bringing my yard list to 170. Rose-breasted grosbeaks were a nice surprise. As was little blue heron, which is not common on my creek. I was disappointed not to see any sparrows or swallows.

Anecdotes:
Since I was all by myself there were any funny happenings.
