Hi Peter,

We had another record-sized group with lots of new faces. That's always great to see.
The park was much slower than Tuesday (as will almost all days in the future be...) but we still had 16 species of warblers and several other good birds including 10 or so spotted sandpipers, a least sandpiper and a black-billed cuckoo.

Here's the list.
And thanks very much for your help with the glue-stickers. We flagged down a park ranger and showed them pictures of the guys. Another walk member had tracked them and could point out their direction and had other pictures.
Let me know what ultimately happened with them.
I did try and keep the people with binoculars out of their field of view. I don't want to encourage any revenge on the birders..
