Team Notes

Participants: Michael Flemming

Weather: Clear, sunny, mild, breezy

Location: The Wetlands Institute Observation Tower, Stone Harbor NJ

Time At Location: 10:00 to 16:30, 6.5 hours

Notes:
Not a Snowy Egret in sight! But did find an immature Little Blue.

Anecdotes:
All the kids that came up to visit me had a great time looking through my scope etc. The Cooper's Hawk flying past below the tower was a big hit as they could see from above. I think I may have made a few converts.
