Despite the high winds and general low numbers of birds, this morning's
bird walk was a pleasure. Experienced birders helped beginning birders,
even loaning binoculars (thank you, Mike and Connie). Life birds were
plentiful for many and, for one participant at least, "too many to count".
Bird walks leave the Visitor Center at 8:30 am every day but Sunday. We
hope to see you here.
