Only two people joined Karsten Hartel and I this rainy morning for our
weekly walk through this urban park. The first hour was dark and
wet, but eventually the weather relented and we got a decent list.
The sparrow show was good with both White-crowned and Clay-colored
showing up. We tried, but could not find any warblers other than a
single Common Yellowthroat. Lots of Ruby-crowed Kinglets, and a nice
pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers.

Next week will be our final week this fall at Danehy Park.
