Team Notes

Participants: Rick Sussman, Alli Sussman, Bob Ringler, Stephanie Lovell, Anna Urciolo

Weather: Temps 48-68, light to moderate S-SW winds

Location: Woodbine, southern Carroll County, MD

Time At Location: 5AM-2PM

Notes:
A great day despite S winds, and no owls. Set a new record for species for our count with 45, a new record for new species with 9 and a new late-date for RT Hummingbird for the county! An incursion of northern species brought us Red-breasted Nuthatch, Pine Siskin and Purple Finches. A pair of N. Harriers flying slowly by was nice, as were the White-crowned Sparrow and Juncos, and the late hummingbird was a nice surprise too.

Anecdotes:
Big misses; only 2 really; Rock Pigeon and Chimney Swift (both seen every previous year).
