62-82 F; light rain/thundershowers - clearing mostly after 9AM; birding separately from but frequently mixing with other birders present, including Susan Steele, Tim Ludwick, and Alison Sheehey. Note that I do not include Dickcissel in this report- I retract my initial report due to the brevity of observations and inadequate documentation to support a species of this rarity.
