We ended up with 31 species. Highlights were a Fox Sparrow kicking up leaves. A Red-shouldered Hawk called as he flew by. Three Red-tailed Hawks soared above us in some sort of mating ritual. First of year Cowbirds were in several locations. The best highlight was a pair of Hooded Mergansers. The pair swam toward us, brightly lit by the sun, before flying off. - Report by Bill Deininger.
