Aug 4th - Today and the Long Weekend

Just a quick post to let everyone know that we've been down to the park a couple of times over the last four days but not a lot has been happening.

Betty was there for an hour on Saturday and got a few species to start-off our 2015 Fall Species List including a local Red-tailed Hawk and a couple of the local Turkey Vultures.

Today, I finally made my appearance at the Watch.  Needless to say, there were no raptors flying.  We added several more species to our growing list of fall birds and butterflies.  We are now at 27 bird species and 5 butterfly species.

Arvo sent along this shot of me hanging the count sheet on the fence for the very first time this season.  Hopefully soon we'll get a raptor to count!


Joining me today were: Arvo, Hugh, Betty, Ron, Manny, Cori, and Diane.  Thanks!

Walter
