"We had 18 observers on a very warm walk on the first January of the new decade. The weather started at 58 degrees and ended at 62 degrees. It was windy, but the rain held off until the end of the walk, with only a brief drizzle. We were treated with 26 species. We started in the parking lot with a fly over Bald Eagle." ~ Bill Deininger, Leader

Description: We had 18 observers on a very warm walk on the first January of the new decade. The weather started at 58 degrees and ended at 62 degrees. It was windy, but the rain held off until the end of the walk, with only a brief drizzle. We were treated with 26 species. We started in the parking lot with a fly over Bald Eagle. The regular expected species were observed by all. We had a nice look at a Pileated Woodpecker. 5 Bluebirds were observed, with the male Bluebird showed off his bright blue feathers. Our Barred Owl was spotted in his usual area, high in a pine tree, tucked in among some pine branches. - Report by Bill Deininger.
