Hi Peter,
It was a beautiful day, once again, in the park. And there were lots of birds everywhere. In addition, we were shadowed by the movie crew doing the Steve Buscemi-produced documentary on the park. They seemed excited about the footage, so hopefully we'll help bring more attention to how important the park is for migrating birds.

As for the list, we had 72 species, which is pretty good for Fall. We had 17 species of warblers, 7 sparrow species, and lots more. Highlights were the Dickcissel (by the ball fields), many Magnolia Warblers, a cooperative Tennessee, a well-behaved Nashville for those hardy enough to last to the end; 3 Common Ravens, 2 Yellow-billed Cuckoos, 2 Brown Creepers, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Gray-cheeked Thrush, lots of Golden-crowned Kinglets, and more.

Here's the list. Thanks again to Ryan and Angie for co-leading.
Ryan, let us all know if I've missed anything.
