Another surprising morning.  Today I started much early than the previous day (26 Sept 2014).  I had great views of the Great Cormorant by the lake.  Also I got my  1st time for PP, a Northern Harrier flying over Lookout Hill.
Warblers, amazing day, with 11 sps seen.  Chestnut-sided Warbler was a nice bonus to today's list.  At the Butterfly Meadow, I saw 3 Indigo Buntings.
