Mostly sunny (cloudy spells); 34F; NW wind 10-15 (good to find lee). Most passerines betw. Waldorf camp and new elevated latrine. MANY BIRDS!! But did not find Bud's Catbird.

  23. Number observed: 18

    Details: Only counted those flying by (from E to W); does not include those going other direction, or those foraging in front of me. One pair, others solos. Unexpected high count. All in the high mxd trees just north of Waldorf Campsite. These are my first for Feb in Maine. It turns out others have been tracking this group since fall, but info not released to public view for some reasons. e.g: 19 seen by us on the Small Point CBC (near here) are not mapped, so I guess they didn't exist.

    Details: male back & forth
