Team Notes

Participants: Debby Bennett, Bill Scudder, Danny Poet, Dawn Brownlee-Tomasso, Dave Reinecke, Eli Anders, Steve Westre

Weather: Low 50s, rainy off and on until around 6 pm

Location: Tuckahoe State Park, Ridgely, MD

Time At Location: 7:30 am - 6:30 pm

Thankfully we picked a gazebo near the lake at Tuckahoe State Park, which gave us cover when it rained. The park manager allowed us to enter early and stay late. Despite the dismal weather, we were pleased to see and hear as many birds as we did. This was our very first Big Sit! We will do it again!
