Notes:
Our third annual Big Sit, held in our fire pit circle at the East end of the pond. Observed a good mix of species as always, with notables being Eastern Wood-peewee, Common Raven, and Killdeer. No ducks seen and only one warbler, a Palm by the pond. Finished the day with a cardboard fire in the pit. All in all, another fun Big Sit event.
