This morning started with great weather, sunny and no breeze but few
birds unfortunately. It seems most of the migrants have taken advantage
of nice days and vacated many places. Eight people had an excellent walk
at the Chirp Creek Farm (former Packard-Littlefield farm) in Lisbon.
This is a wonderful place to walk and we all enjoyed being there.
Sparrows were sparse, no white-crowned were seen, but we did get six
sparrow species. The Bluebirds were most accommodating. All in all we
had 29 species.

Rock Pigeon
