Some 20 participants saw 43 bird species and a few of the 7000 trees (of 150 species) in Green-Wood this morning. We walked from Valley Water to Sylvan Water to Dell/Crescent Waters and back to 25th St. over 3.5 hours. Temps were cool, skies bright and sunny to dark and stormy.  Fairly quiet overall.
