Team Notes

Participants: Corey Husic

Weather: 45-67F, mostly cloudy

Location: Harvard Yard

Time At Location: a few hours total (hard to say for sure)

Notes:
The Savannah Sparrow that gave a flight call within the first minute after midnight was probably the best bird of the day. Not much activity (not that any was really expected), but a late-day Yellow-rumped Warbler was nice to get!

Anecdotes:
Drunk college students, sirens, church bells, and traffic noise made good nocturnal listening rather difficult! My day was spent between studying for midterms and birding, so I wasn't out as much as I would've liked, but I did manage to find a few species. It felt good to sit outside in the brisk fall air for a while.
