Despite the chilly temps and occasional drizzle, we had a decent outing today.  We were ten members altogether, walked 1.5 miles during the three-hour adventure, and counted a total of 50 species.  It was a curious mix of birds we found — a Cape May Warbler and a late Palm Warbler, but the resident Northern Flicker, Brown Creeper, Louisiana Waterthrush, American Goldfinch and Scarlet Tanager were all no-shows, as were all three of the buteos and Turkey Vulture.  Nevertheless, everyone seemed to have a good time.  The Virginia Rail gave a nice performance.  Click below to see complete species list.
