Subject: [GABO-L] Morningside Nature Preserve, Fulton Co. and Zonolite Park, DeKalb Co. (Nov 4), and Piedmont Park, Fulton Co. (Nov 5)

Yesterday's AAS walk at Morningside and Zonolite, led by Gus Kaufman and
me, yielded two falcons: an American Kestrel at Morningside Preserve and a
Peregrine Falcon at Zonolite park, near the communication towers. There was
a good showing of residents and winter arrivals, including Cedar Waxwings,
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, White-throated Sparrows and Orange-crowned
Warblers, and big flocks of Common Grackles and Red-winged blackbirds.

This morning at Piedmont Park, I was surprised to see an immature Baltimore
Oriole in some sumac bushes near the overlook point a little uphill from
Magnolia Hall and the Parking lot exit. This area has been very productive
lately, with quite a few feeding flocks seeming to favour it.
