Kit Carson Park Field Trip Report

It was hot! It was muggy! But, it was fun none the less! Penny Hernandez led
our outing today. I step in to record our sightings for her. After starting
out as a group of 20, we lost 7 birders along the way due to the conditions, but
Penny held out to just about the end of the walk. We enjoyed some new birders
