Hi Peter,

we had a delayed start of 9:30 since last night it looked like rain.  Even so we had a great day.  17 warbler sp.  we went around the lake from picnic tables, counter-clockwise.  Very very active around thru to 3-sisters.  I think we could have done a big-sit anywhere along there and done well.  seems like birds are staging to leave?  We didn't get to lookout, penna or ravine, so overall sp count is low.

Best,
Bobbi

Dear Dennis:

What started out as a dreary morning, turned into terrific birding day. Many of the regular Saturday birders showed up, and everyone pitched in to get more than 60 species, including 20 Warblers, a Philadelphia Vireo and a Bald Eagle. 

Thanks to Kathy T, Richard, Gus, Patty, Ryan, Angie, Adam, Isabel, Rob Bate, Tracy, Chris and two new to the group, Bess and another fellow whose name slips my mind, for their help in spotting and identifying. And thanks to Leah and Simon (the author of our Bald Eagle sighting) for joining up on the second part of the walk.  I hope I haven't left anyone out. I enjoyed the walk. 

Kathy T helped me construct the list. 

Ann
