Team Notes

Participants: 16 friends

Weather: Clear and bright

Location: 751 Willow Lake Drive, Franktown Colorado

Notes:
Excellent pot luck food. Fabulous & sparkling fall color -- scrub oak all shades of yellow, orange, red, & green. Two White-throated Sparrows under the feeders, feeding with White-crowneds & juncos. Endless procession of jays -- 3 species -- all day long. Peaks of 11 Steller's, 6 each Blue & Scrub. Marsh Wren & Song sparrow. Half a mile away, courtesy of scope & beaters. Marsh Wren new for Franktown Basin bird list, and of our yard list (I guess you can include it).

Anecdotes:
We should have sat all night. Sometime during the night a Black Bear came in and trimmed 5 branches off our apple tree.
