Team Notes

Participants: Mike Bochnik, Kelli Bochnik, Bill Van Wart, Joe O'Connell, Barbara Dexter, Lynn Shaw, Carol Lange, May Guglielmo

Weather: Sunny, not a clud in the sky, light N and W winds

Location: Lenoir Preserve

Time At Location: 5:30 AM - 4:00PM

Great beutiful day. We had the second most species we've seen in ten years. Somehow we missed Double-crested Cormorant - it's always some common bird that you miss! Large numbers of Canada Geese, Blue Jays and American Robins were seen migrating in the early morning. Hawks were few and far between but we did manage most of the expected species. Best bird way a flyover calling Dickcissel.
