I looked for the European Goldfinch on March 16, 2017, from 1pm to 4:15pm
in all areas near the visitor center, picnic area, and boat house with no
success. Apparently, the last birders to see it did so around the time I
arrived. I saw two other birders when I drove in so I am guessing these
were the two that last reported it to eBird. I also tried to locate it on
March 17 in the morning. Both times, I saw plenty of juncos and two
American Goldfinch foraging all through the picnic area to areas by the
boat house. On the 16th, I did spot an American Woodcock in the sun next to
a tree in the picnic area closest to the first boat house parking area. A
first for me in this park and a first for a close up daytime sighting...so
I am glad I made the trip.
