Team Notes

Participants: Jay Adams, Al Haury, Mike Smith, Cheryl Ring, Jay Yoe

Weather: Partly cloudy, breezy, cool

Location: Augusta, Maine

Time At Location: 7 hours

Notes:
This was our first time doing the big sit, both as a location (Viles Arboretum) and as individuals. The date is late in this part of Maine for much variety but most of the birds one might have expected showed up. We took adavantage by working on our chip-note recognition.

Anecdotes:
Some of the passers-by thought we were a little crazy, but we know that.
