Osprey
 
Our big highlight of the day was a Pileated Woodpecker.  A few people saw only a quick glimpse of it as it moved across the area.  It was heard calling from several locations, the last being the parkette behind the Arts Council.

Ron, Trudy, Betty, Arvo, Manny, and a few others helped out with today's watch.
