Team Notes

Participants: Joseph E. Devereaux

Weather: Sunny and 70

Location: Havenwoods State Forest - Milwaukee, WI

Time At Location: Four hours total

Notes:
I was completely impressed at the number of neighborhood American robins. There were also man, many Eastern bluebirds. For some unexplained reason; the two seemed to get on each other's nerves. Squawking and fussing each time they got together.

Anecdotes:
There has never been a bad day of bird watching...ever.
