Team Notes

Participants: Mr

Weather: Clear. 44 degrees to start

Location: St. Joseph Valley Memorial Park

Time At Location: 8.5 hours total (not including breaks)

Low level of bird activity until around five pm. Birds largely quiet. Many sightings only brief glimpses that were insufficient to ID. According to sign, gates are locked at five beginning in October and I didn't leave until seven. Would like to have remained until after dark to listen for owls. Surprised the pond didn't draw more birds. Mallards beginning to arrive as I was leaving; otherwise no pond activity nearly the entire day.
