Team Notes

Participants: Selena and Mark Kiser

Weather: Mostly sunny, light breeze, temp: 70s to 80s

Location: backyard

Time At Location: 8:45 AM to 8:45 PM (6 hours, 50 minutes total)

Notes:
In the late afternoon/early evening, there was an influx of migratory songbirds and raptor species. We had our first of the fall House Wren, Merlin, American Kestrel, and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker for our property.

Anecdotes:
We normally lead the St. Marks Spotters team at St. Marks NWR, FL, but due to the government shutdown, we counted at home instead. We also had a Gray Rat Snake, Green Anoles, lots of dragonflies, and some butterflies.
