Nightfall at Jakes Landing - Sunday, March 6th, 2016

The mild weather made for perfect conditions for bird viewing.  Eagles and Harriers were everywhere providing everyone with great looks.  Two Short-eared Owls excited everyone as they hunted close to the creek.  We ended the evening with Woodcocks displaying. Leaders: Chris Marks, Bert Hixon, BJ Pinnock, & Mary Watkins.
