Team Notes

Participants: Mike Patterson, Steve Warner, Neal Maine

Weather: Overcast, with intermittent fog

Location: Seltzer Park, Seaside Cove, Seaside, OR

Time At Location: 7:45 to 13:30 (5hrs and 45min)

The ocean was particularly angry which, coupled with intermittent fog made for poor ocean viewing conditions. On the plus side, Steve had put up bird feeders earlier in the week which made the sparrow hunting easier.
