Team Notes

Participants: Aidan Place

Weather: Foggy in the morning. Eventually gave way to clear skies.

Location: Greencove Wetlands

Time At Location: 7:00 AM to 10:30 AM

One highlight was definitely seeing white-crowned, Lincoln's, song, and swamp sparrows in a single shrub at the same time. The number of pheasants around was a surprise (though they have probably been recently stocked). Rusty blackbirds, white-throated sparrow, and white-crowned sparrow were first of fall for me.
