Walked to the pergola meeting place from our new home today for the first time. Looking forward to taking this walk for many years to come.

Seven Birders met on a perfect morning. Most active spot was duck island that saw Praire, Parula, yellow, common yellow throat, black and white northern waterthrush. Other highlights were nice looks at humming birds, a soaring peregrine on lookout, common loon flyover and continuing blue wing teal you found on last weeks walk at upper pool. We also had a shorebird flyover at lamp post 249 but it was to fast for us. Appeared to be calidrid, bigger than a peep, breast streaking ending abruptly at white belly, fluid wing beats couldn't see bill. 

Nice warm up for the series,
