Today's best non-raptor was a Belted Kingfisher which flew by heading east. The best butterfly today was a Common Buckeye.

Just some of the gang from today.

Look at this great shot that Phil's young son took of me on Sunday. Thanks Josh!

Another good crowd on hand today including: Ann, Chris, Allison, Margaret, Carol, Heather, Peter, Pat, Nancy, Norm, Freida, Phil, Mike 3, Sheldon, and Naish McHugh and his wife.
