Fall Migrants at the Rea Farm - Saturday, October 29th, 2016

Chilly until the sun rose a little and then some good bird activity, including Gray Catbird, Brown Thrasher, Field and Song Sparrow, Savanah Sparrow later on, as well as Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers, with Blue Jays overhead. Of interest is the bird I originally called a female Bobolink which I later decided was actually a Grasshopper Sparrow. Leaders: Karl Lukens, Kyle Chelius, Michael McCabe, Deb Payson, and Karen Thompson.
