Hi Peter,

It was a great Fall day in the Park. Not lots of birds, unfortunately, but still a good mix of species. Highlights were probably Common Nighthawk (2 flying by south end of lake), Wilson's Warbler, Osprey, a couple of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers as one of five species of woodpeckers; and Veery, Swainson's and Gray-cheeked Thrush.

The list is below and I may be able to send a couple of pictures later.
