Sunny, chilly, 46 degrees to start. Parked in the lot by the lighthouse and walked the road and into the Audubon sanctuary to Rampart's Field and back. Be careful on the wooden boards laid out along the trail. They are wicked slippery as I found out by taking a nasty fall. I was fine, my camera was not.

    Details: Maybe the surprize of the morning. Shortly after entering the Audubon sanctuary, I got on a raptor that landed in a tree. I could see that it was a buteo and clearly smaller than a RTHA. The bird turned and flew and I could see the rufous wing linings.

    Details: After about 5 minutes of walking about the field, we picked up on the WEKI. It was in the thicket just to the right of the solar panel. These were the best looks I have ever had of a WEKI. In th bright, early morning light the olive color stood out on its pale, gray back. The yellow in the belly showed beautifully. Continuing bird first found by Sean Williams. I got off one photo and my camera died, probably due to the spill I took on the way in.
