It all started yesterday morning with the Crow mobbing a Barred Owl across 
the lake from me. Then from about 6:30 to 7:10 am there was a good bird 
movement through the tree along side the lake feeding . Then again in the 
afternoon for about 45 minutes. Just before 6pm there was and amazing show 
of feeding that had the surprise of the day. Two female Scarlet Tanagers and 
two Common Nighthawks just before 7 pm last night.
