Team Notes

Participants: 25 for the day

Weather: clear and 75degree high

Location: Bucktoe Creek Preserve, Avondale, PA

Time At Location: 15 hours

25 total. Joe Sebastiani and William Ryan Captains

Beautiful night with lots of stars and not many overhead nocturnal migrants. A mystery hoot that we thought (hoped) would be a Long-eared Owl but turned out to be a female Great Horned Owl squawk call. New birds tapered off after lunch. Best birds were 2 flyover Bobolink and a very low, circling Peregrine Falcon.
