There were lots of active birds everywhere in the bright morning sun 
today at Button Bay State Park on Lake Champlain.

Nine warbler species, seven sparrow species, both kinglet species, three 
wren species, three Common Loons, and three Philadelphia Vireos made it 
a most fun, marvelous autumn, birding outing.  55 species total (see below).
