Subject: Good weekend birding around Durham
The birding was good Saturday at Eno Rover SP (Few's Ford), Sandy Creek city park, and Butner Gamelands (Brickhouse Road), and noticeably slower Sunday.

I was happy to see the male kestrel at Butner Gamelands again, though the bird had moved further down Brickouse Rd to the power lines near the lake.
