Twenty-three people showed up yesterday morning. Our largest group  
ever with many first time attendees. It's also very nice when the  
birds cooperate. Great Crested Flycatcher put on a great show for the  
first timers, as did the Baltimore Orioles. The Green Heron even gave  
us a fishing demonstration down by the marsh. Nice to see the  
Bobolinks back in the field.

Now only if the Scissor-tailed could have flown up a just a few miles  
north!
