Team Notes

Participants: Bruce Krucke

Weather: Temps from 58° to 72°--fair to partly cloudy and then fair again. Light breezes

Location: Front deck of my house--7352 Toogoodoo Rd., Yonges Island, SC

Time At Location: 8 hours with a couple of short breaks

Not a very birdy day. The day before was much better--isn't that always the way. The only two species I don't see all the time were the ruby-crowned kinglet, which I see only occasionally and the house wren, which was only my second sighting of one here in 26 years. I was surprised at how many black vultures there were compared to turkey vultures. I could hear little warblery noises in the live oaks, but couldn't see them for IDing.
