Team Notes

Participants: Jason Lewis, Ethan Kistler

Weather: Windy, cloudy, temp mid 70's

Location: Crane Creek Estuary Trail, Ottawa NWR

Time At Location: 7:30 am - 1:30 pm.

I had a good count, really enjoyed being out on the refuge. Ethan Kistler stopped by for a few hours and helped me pick up a few needed species. Extremely windy and made counting even close birds difficult by ear. Overall, wonderful day already looking forward to next year.
