Made my first trip to Victory checking out Gray Jays.  Most birds were
seen along the main road and pipeline.  Did not get down the Lee Meadow
Rd.(the one with the concrete bridge) a great spring warbler walk,
second only to the Guldenshu Rd. (first left after Bog Br.).  some
numbers below are guestimates.
