Hi Peter,
It was a beautiful day, with a smattering of birds around the park. The numbers were down from last week, but there were some really good species. We never made it to the lake or even out onto the peninsula, so the list is a bit shy this week. Here are some of the hightlights:

Thanks to Eleanor for spotting the Red-necked Phalarope; really a great bird for the park. We also had Olive-sided and Yellow-bellied Flycatchers, at least 5 Bay-breasted Warblers, Wilson's, Tennessee (Valerie), Worm-eating Warblers; and more.

The lifer for me was a walk that included a 7-week old. So many lifers....

Here's the list to post. See everyone next week.
