It was a pleasant early morning along the Kaw. I listed 59 species about the same as yesterday. But the activity has dropped off a bit from yesterday and definitely from the two days before. I walked with Jon King a bit and his assessment was the same. Also, ran into Molly Zahn who was likely still out after I left. I think a lot of birds exited the park after the storms. For example, I had 4 Wood Thrushes yesterday & none today and Clay-colored Sparrows were vocal and plentiful and heard only 2 today. Maybe I was not listening well but I did not list a Red-eyed Vireo today.
