Hi Peter (and the group...)
As promised, here's the list of what we saw today.

Although it was cold enough for penguins to go flying by, we did survive and eventually found some birds that weren't frozen to death.

Highlights for the group were Prairie Warbler on the peninsula, Worm-eating Warbler by the sumacs near peninsula meadow, Yellow-throated Vireo on center drive and also in the sumacs, several really beautiful Blue-headed Vireos, and more.
54 species and 7 species of warblers (or 9 if we can count those from our extended family...)

Jennifer found a Prothonotary near the Quaker Cemetery on her way out, and Radka found an Ovenbird on her way out. So I don't know if we get to add those or not.

We also ran into a National Audubon group led by Martha Harbison. But don't worry, we scared all of the birds so they wouldn't see any....
