19 birders attended the walk. The weather was cloudy and we even got a little rain at the end. Sand Pond has been dredged and all the reeds and several trees have been removed. The only ducks on the pond were Mallards and there were no Blackbirds, Coots, Gallinules, Egrets, or Scaly-breasted Munias. We heard the Chat, but never saw him. We did not get a good visual id on the Gnatcatchers, but clearly heard the call of both the California and Blue-Gray. The best sighting was of a very accommodating Blue Grosbeak. Consistent with the increase in Warbling Vireo sightings this year, we saw our first one at this location on the walk. At one point in the walk, the group split in half. I have heard from two of the other group, so our list of 57 species may increase a few more.
