Hi Peter,

We have a great walk today in the Park. There was a large group of birders (40??) and even more birds.
Highlights included Osprey, American Kestrel, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Brown Creeper, lots of Pine and Palm Warblers, a cooperative Louisiana Waterthrush, 8 species of Sparrows including Field and Savannah (and Towhee and Junco), and 2 Rusty Blackbirds.

Here's the list and a few photos in case we can post those on our FB site.
(Let me know if that's something I can/should do.
