There were plenty of migrants and lingering species to see on this day for nine people.  We started with Wood Ducks, Common Mergansers and a Green Heron in the wetland, where a Red-tailed Hawk was perched on a branch protruding from the surface.  A Bald Eagle flew over as well as a falcon, too briefly and far away to identify.  We enjoyed looks at two Phoebes, a Catbird, some Mockingbirds and six Flickers.  A Black-and-white Warbler was added to the usual Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers, while Savannah Sparrows lurked in the grasses and brush.
