Hi Peter,
It was nice seeing you today in the park. It was a very good day for birding. The high-light was a Common Loon (thanks to Linda) which was a lifer for me. I have been dreaming about seeing this bird since I first heard its haunting call (or song). Also I saw few birds for the first time this spring including: a Pine Warbler, An Osprey, a Laughing Gull and Green Winged Teal (thanks to you). and for the first time since I started birding two years ago, I saw the five species of Woodpeckers on the same day. They were all between the Ravine and the Music Pagoda.
