This was a field trip sponsored by McMinnville Parks & Rec. Heavy ground fog, cool morning kept songbirds subdued in first hour. We began at 9AM.

Migrants included yellowlegs, juncos, Fox Sparrows, Barn Swallows, Cacklers passing overhead. Mostly we saw locals, including Hairy Woodpecker and Black Phoebe.
