I made a 5.5 hour loop from Ogden through Boone Co., Story Co. & northern Polk Co. today (with an occasional short hike) and ended up with 56 bird species--my best day of the year so far. Most were common species everyone has been seeing the past few weeks, but I managed 2 FOY finds, both at McCoy Wildlife Area, on the SE side of Ledges State Park. Taking a short walk down the road from the parking area, I found a *Yellow-bellied Sapsucker *on an field edge oak tree*,* and about 50 meters further south, at the edge of main timber, was a flock of 9 *Fox Sparrows*. Also I saw the Cinnamon Teal for the 5th consecutive day.
