Team Notes

Participants: John Triana

Weather: Sunny; 45-65, light wind

Location: Prospect, CT - backyard

Time At Location: 5 hours - on and off all day

Had two birds on Sit! day that I usually do not get in my backyard - 4 House Finches were on a feeder when I started in the morning. Also had Red-breasted Nuthatch on two occaisions during the day. Big miss was with the hawks - didn't see a single one all day. My yard is wooded so the window to the sky is small and just never got lucky when I was out there.
