The 20 participants were ready to go and the trip started off well at the spillway with a ravenous Raven (juvenile) being fed by an adult. Also there was a pair of perched Rough-winged Swallows at eye level. We soon saw the first of many Towhees, a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers, Chestnut-sided Warbler, Indigo Buntings and Ovenbird. A cooperative Swainson's Thrush approached our large group within 30 feet as we walked down to the water. It repeated its approach on our return, making us wonder who was studying whom. Heard but not seen were Black-billed and Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Least Flycatcher, Prairie Warbler and Wood Thrushes. It ended up being a five hour walk, but nobody seemed like quitting until our tally was 53 species and our batteries ran out. Thanks to Tim, Jan, Donna, Howard & Pete for all their help.
