sorry hit the enter key
2 WILSON SNIPE seen flying into cover, BELTED KINGFISHER along the marsh area, 2 LINCOLN'S SPARROWS, many AMERICAN GOLDFINCH and only 2 LESSER GOLDFINCH and a calling PINE SISKIN. At the end of the walk and as I was pulling out of the area I saw a NORTHERN HARRIER making for a total of 41 species. Thanks for everyone that joined me on the walk.
