Team Notes

Participants: Matt and Jenny Nichols

Weather: clear with few clouds in the afternoon

Location: backyard Winchester, Virginia

Time At Location: 7am-7pm

Not a bad day for our backyard. We got 25 of the total of 33 birds seen on our yard list for the last 3 years. A few birds slipped by unidentified. I vow to get more warblers next year. A couple got away as well as a Hawk, probably Cooper's and a oriole or evening grosbeak sort of bird flying overhead. I wish I could have ID'ed that one. The birds had nice color and were fairly large. I did notice I had 23 of 25 species in the first 3 hours of the sit!
