What a wonderful day to be out looking for birds. Ten of us walked the
Riverside Trail in Lewiston from Sunnyside Park to Tall Pines. We had
three most cooperative birds … two Ovenbirds at the start out in the
open for as long as we wanted, at least one Red-eyed Vireo who would not
stop singing and seemed to follow us, so maybe it was two birds, and he
was low and often very visible. The third were two Pine Warblers, again
low and easily seen for an extended period.

Otherwise we had 32 species, seen or heard(H):
Mallard – at least 18 along the river shore
Rock Pigeon
Mourning Dove
Chimney Swift – maybe 5, hard to count
Double-crested Cormorant
Bald Eagle – adult flying over but seen very well by all
Broad-winged Hawk – 2, one low over us seen well
