Team Notes

Participants: Adam Zorn

Weather: Cold, rainy & windy. Temps from 39-45 degrees F; 5-15mph winds; wind chills in the mid to upper 30's. Cloudy skies.

Location: North Woods section of the Huston-Brumbaugh Nature Center

Time At Location: 7am-12pm

Notes:
Cold, rain, and wind at the site made for difficult conditions for a sedentary day of birding. Few birds flying over. Not many working the forest edge for insects as in past years. The weedy field and brush pile did attract a few species including a Lincoln's Sparrow - a first for the Nature Center.

Anecdotes:
Saw a few deer just after sunrise walking though the soybean field
