The day started out refreshingly cool and ended on the hot side, making our lunch pitstop at the Pitstop that much more enjoyable. We had an enthusiastic crowd of 27 birders that eventually found 56 species. No, it did not challenge last fall’s all time record of 72 species, but still a rewarding number. Missing, amoungst others, are the ever present wood ducks, our common loggerhead shrike and the barn owl in the barn.
