Protocol: Traveling 2.3 miles
Comments: Seacoast Chapter of NH Audubon outing led by Dan
Hubbard. Sixty-three folks is an all-time record of participants
for this walk. Day was sunny with a cool start. The bird song was
plentiful, and we had a nice showing of warblers--particularly
Cape May warblers.
