Beginning with about 30 participants today we finished with a species total exceeding 70 (including 17 species of warblers). Highlight birds included Blue Grosbeak, Cerulean and Hooded Warblers. I will attempt to create and share a more detailed list in the near future. Many birds remained well beyond easy reach in sky-high oaks. I owe special thanks to Raphael, who helped find and locate birds for our group.
