Ye of little faith. Only three people turned out for a great walk this morning at Pineland Farm. Gordon Smith plus Joan and I. I admit it looked almost like rain and the forecast was not encouraging. But the sun tried to peak out a few times and the air was wonderful and no wind or rain. When we finished the full walk there were a few drops and by the time we checked the gift shop, etc. it was real rain, but we never got wet.

We had 38 species of birds including 10 warbler species. The bird of the day was perhaps a Prairie Warbler who was most cooperative. Birds seen and heard (H) were:

Great Blue Heron
