Unusually pleasant early April morning. Some nice birds though some
were conspicuously absent including both Kinglets and Hermit Thrush
(since they have been report both there and multiple other places
recently). Special thanks to Brooke Stevens for her sharp eyes locating
the owl and chasing down the singing Pine Warbler.
