Tuesday’s Rainy Walk: The Full Monte


This is most of the group who joined us on our Third Tuesday of the Month walk at Harrier Meadow.

We set a new record: 43 species seen by  nine people, or more than four birds per person. Imagine if we had a better turnout!

Full list, including some impressive birds, follows. (As you can see from the photo, the birding was intense that one birder did not stop to have his picture taken. Also impressive, just a tad less so
