Team Notes

Participants: Mike, Steve, David, Neal, James

Weather: Overcast skies and intermittent rain; visibility fair to good.

Location: Seltzer Park

Time At Location: 07:30 to 12:30

Overall, a good day, though very little was happening in the way of bird movement. No notable fly-bys on the ocean. Good passerine numbers in the wetland, but curiously missing kinglets and chickadees.
