Team Notes

Participants: Andrea Robbins, George Robbins

Weather: 58 degrees, overcast with steady rain

Location: Pittsfield, NH, our back deck, feeders, and view of Sunocook River and pond

Time At Location: 11 am to 6 pm

After getting rained out (by remnants of Hurricane Mathew) at my favorite circle location in Tuftonboro, I ran an Indoor-looking-out count of our backyard feeders.  I didn't start until 11 am, and it was raining steadily until dark so I didn't stand outside to listen, both of which were definite handicaps.    Missed a few of the expected species (Hairy Woodpecker and Chipping Sparrow) but did see 15 of the usual locals.
