Hi Peter,

Well, we had to work hard for the birds today, they were few and far between.  Luckily we had a patient and enthusiastic group! A few hotspots but overall very quiet.  One highlight (or lowlight?) was when we finally found a birdy spot on top of Lookout (birdy meaning goldfinches and red-eyed vireos ;-)) only to have all the birds flushed by a sharp-shinned hawk who must have been as desperate for birds as we were , because it made quite a ruckus as it chased and and flushed everything away.  

Here's hoping the NW winds Wed night bring Tom some good birds on Thursday!
