Team Notes

Participants: Many people came and went. Event led by Scott Enochs and Don Gorney.

Weather: Absolutley beautiful

Location: Observation deck at Eagle Creek Park Ornithology Center

Time At Location: 9:00am to 2:00pm

Five species of ducks and four shorebirds helped us get over the 40 mark on this abbreviated Big Sit.

A beautiful day but birds were not migrating or in flight as usual. Periodic rains over the last few months allowed trees to hold onto their leaves obscuring the view for observers.
