Hi Peter,

Well, it was sad to be doing our last Thursday walk for the season. Violating all of my instincts and rules I allowed everyone, myself included, 30 seconds to be verklempt ...before getting back to the important job of birding....

It was very slow in the park....somebody had "hoovered out" all of birds the night before....but we did manage to dig up some good species including
White-crowned Sparrow (thanks to Gus), Purple Finch, Nashville Warbler, American Widgeon, a Merlin, a fleeting Peregrine (thanks to Kathy), a fairly cooperative Winter Wren, a very cooperative Black-throated green Warbler.

Here's the list. I'll send a couple of shots later.
Guess we all have to hole up inside and wait for Spring now
