Team Notes

Participants: Yvonne Dunphe, Chris and Sue Zacharias, Michael Hall, Marilyn and Michael Shade

Weather: Sunny to partly cloudy, temp range 45-75 degrees F

Time At Location: 14.5 hours

This was the first Big Sit for Five Rivers Metroparks. We are already making plans for next year. We didn't have a lot of birders show up, but since the weather was so nice, and being birders, many of our people were off on their own adventures in a variety of places. Definitely a lot of fun and looking forward to a lot more Big Sits in the years to come.
