A nice walk around Lefferts Pond yesterday produced 47 species. It is still possible to walk around the pond, but you need to wade the stream along Wildcat Road where a beaver dam has flooded the trail.

Winnowing snipe were heard the whole time around the pond. Also, this was the first time we've heard yellow-billed cuckoo there (one was quite vocal).
