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.
