Twilight Watch at The Meadows - Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Twilight at the Meadows this evening was most enjoyable. A number of the participants had 'Life' birds. Right at the beginning of the walk we had a Vesper Sparrow sitting on the path for all to see. Lifer number one! We finished the walk with good looks at a pair of Sora's and a Virginia Rail for Lifers two & three. Leaders: Warren Cairo and Bill Smythe.
