Twilight Watch at the Meadows - Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

A pleasant evening at the Meadows, sunny skies and summer temperatures.  We had some nice birds and the highlight for most of the participants were great looks at a perched Bobolink.  Many had heard leaders call them out while they flew overhead and were pleased to see one sitting still.  Leaders: Warren Cairo, Patty Rourke and Bill Smythe.
