A cool morning warming up as spring should. There were a dozen of us and we spent about 2.5 hours in the cemetery, passing by all four water bodies. Great views of bright, vocalizing Pine warblers, Kestrel plucking what looked like a sparrow, and a brief Merlin appearance at Crescent Water, which was the most active spot of the morning. Definitely felt like spring with the Phoebes and Pines singing.
This is the full list.
Red-tailed Hawk (may have been same juvie x3)
Belted Kingfisher (Sylvan Water)
Northern Flicker (flickermania)
Fish Crow (6, vocalizing as they harried a Red-tailed)
Pine Warbler (min. of 5, Valley & Crescent Waters)
