Notes:
This location provided fewer birds than our usual location at the Nature Center boardwalk hub, which was under construction and not accessible this year. Our total of 32 species is now our new low. We did add Pied-billed grebe to our cumulative Big Sit list which now totals 90 species over the 15 years we have held this event.

Anecdotes:
We had 2 young birders join us this year.
