Hi Peter,

Hope you're having a great Spring.

Although we've been having NW winds, the park still had a good number of birds, many piled up at the North end waiting to get the heck out of town...

We had a good group with lots of new people and 76 species of birds. Highlights included Bank Swallow, 16 species of warblers, Purple Finch, 2 Indigo Buntings, Orchard Oriole and a lot more.
