Hi Peter,
Another fantastic Fall day, with great weather and a surprising number of birds, still!
It's hard to believe we got 79 species again....same as last week.
The number is a bit higher as we had two groups, due to the group size restrictions.

Highlights: Orange-crowned Warbler, 7 species of raptors including a Bald Eagle seen by Karen, Rusty Blackbird, also Karen's group pre-merger..., 12 species of warblers including the OC and a Wilson's, a Bufflehead, thanks to Michele, and more.

Here's the list. I guess this is the last one for the Fall season, but we've got to consider doing more popup or regular walks as Winter arrives.
