There were three dozen people on our dawn bird walk at the college reunion.  Despite a bit of mist the weather held and the birds appeared.  Two Catbirds, at least three Baltimore Orioles, female Rose-breasted Grosbeak, male Yellow Warbler, fly-over Red-tailed Hawk, Black-capped Chickadees, a pair of Eastern Kingbirds patrolling their territory by Lyman Lakes, Red-bellied Woodpecker.  Birds and birders were both pleased with their relative performance.  One more bird walk tomorrow.
