Tim Jasinski spotted a number of warbler species in the ravine behind the center, a good start toward the total of 12 warbler species for the evening. The resident Barred Owls called and sat obligingly where all could have a great view. Gray Catbirds and brilliant orange and black Baltimore Orioles sang at many locations.

Tim Jasinski spotted a number of warbler species in the ravine behind the center, a good start toward the total of 12 warbler species for the evening.

An Indigo Bunting flashed blue in this field and House Wrens and a Carolina Wren sang loudly. - Penny O’Connor, WCAS Board Member
