Reports from Adam and Alex:
Hi Peter Had a chance to walk around the Lullwater/Peninsula
/Lookout Hill/Upper Pool area this morn (first chance
in ages). Huge numbers of American Thrush, many juvs.
2 noisy Solitary Sandpiper flying around the new islands near the ice rink. 3 Orchard Oriole on Breeze Hill.
A group of 3 Great Crested Flycatcher on Lookout. Could
not find the White-eyed Vireos that others have seen near
the Maryland Monument but thought I heard one singing
once (not sure). 1 Ring-billed Gull flyover (hello winter?) It might be the dull heart of summer, but there are still some
birds around!
