Sorry for the late posting. Here is the bird list from last Saturday's  GMAS 
field trip to Shelburne Farms. We had a large group which we divided into  
smaller groups that explored the property near the Lone Tree Trail, the Farm  
Trail, Whimsey Meadows, and the Lake.  This is a composite list which  includes 
the birds recorded by Chip Wright, Alison Wagner, Larry Haugh, Shirley  
Johnson, and myself. 35 species were identified despite the rain.
