The Wed mourning group did the mid-section of Alton-Baker Park, also known as the Day Island Landfill, just west of the I-5 bridge. We first found a nice warbler flock of typical early migrant species: Yellow-Warblers of both types, Black-throated Grays, plus kinglets, chickadees, creepers and others, in the tall woodland north of the bridge that crosses the canoe canal.
