Had to work a bit harder for species today - clearly a lot left with less
coming in. Highlights were an FOY BLUE-HEADED VIREO and the ethereal song
of the WOOD THRUSH (perhaps the same one Al heard earlier)

Unfortunately found a deceased long-tailed weasel, otherwise would've had a
new mammal to add to my list here.
