Team Notes

Participants: Alli Sussman, Rick Sussman

Weather: Perfect, sunny and warm, temps from 50-70 degrees F., with little or no wind

Location: Our deck in Woodbine, MD

Time At Location: 6:30AM-12:30PM

Notes:
Besides the birds we saw many late migrating Monarchs , a very large Wheel Bug, and a new (for us) species of biting fly (like a deer fly, sort of).

Anecdotes:
Best bird was a juvenile Northern Harrier which flew low over the house from west to east in perfect mid-morning light, a bird we don't often see here, especially this low.
