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.
