Partly-mostly sunny and mild (upper 50s) with passing low clouds pushed by sometimes gusty SW winds. Did a meandering circumnavigation of the southern half; likely missed multiple species as I was concentrating on photographic documentation of breeding birds. [Photos added]

Observations

  1. Number observed: 25

    Details: Odd - tight flock flying to (and roosting in) multiple trees around the western periphery. Possibly some additional pairs (heard singing from two different areas).

    Breeding Code: S Singing Bird (Possible)
  2. Number observed: 1

    Breeding Code: S Singing Bird (Possible)

    Male 1
    Female 1
    Sex Unknown 2 1
  4. Number observed: 7

    Details: One female along the west side periphery was repeatedly visiting the same area, presumably a nest (though distant in tree cover so I was unable to get close to try to find the nest).

  9. Number observed: 1
    Media:
  10. Number observed: 2

  11. Number observed: 3
  12. Number observed: 2
