Team Notes

Participants: Joseph Devereaux, Robert Massey, Jim Edelhuber, Rita Wiskowski, Jen Ambrose, Jessica Hilt, and Dave Flores

Weather: 32 degrees and 10 MPH wind from the south/southwest - partly sunny

Location: Magic Hedge - Lake Park

Time At Location: 11 hours

Notes:
We had a great turnout with many birdwatching participants who came and went during the day. Everyone contributed with at least one new sighting. The weather was cold and windy, but tolerable as it was dry. A flock of Palm warblers and Yellow-rumped warblers hung around all day and moved from area to area eating insects and seeds. A father and son named Steve and Nathan walked up and chatted as well as four people from Minnesota who were in Milwaukee for a 40th reunion.
