We were only 4 this morning in the light rain. Orrin, Janet, Vin & myself. Right at the start we had a wood duck in front of the Audubon Ctr. and Janet got us on a Black & white warbler to the side of the boathouse,a nice start for a walk in the rain.In all we had 3 Warbler species. We also saw the youngest Downy Woodpecker any of us had ever seen. Many of the birds seen were juveniles.
