Team Notes

Weather: Overcast, windy, and 52 degrees

Location: Windsor Hills Park, Renton, WA

Time At Location: 2:45

Notes:
There were less birds than usual in this spot, though we definitely saw some. The Hutton's Vireo looked extra floofy today, as did the Hermit Thrush--they must have been cold. Once the wind started to blow a bit stronger, a lot of the bird noise quieted for a while, though it did trickle back eventually. The noise seemed to come in waves, loud and soft. We were at this spot for about two hours--we would have liked to stay longer! Next year we hope to spend the entire day in our spot.
