Hi everyone,

It was quiet today, but our group of 10 birders were happy to see a White-eyed Vireo, Winter Wren and Gray-cheeked Thrush by the Wellhouse green shipping containers.  Later, we made the trek to the sparrowbowl, where instead of sparrows, we got close, long looks at a bright Pine Warbler and a Chestnut-sided, both low and in the sun.  We walked back via the ballfields, but  once again, didn't find sparrows.  

We missed you, Bobbi, but all in all, it was a pleasant last fall Tuesday walk.
