THE WINNERS: Monday Morning Mystery Caption
OWL CONTEST: Pick the arrival date


    Stephanie sez: Yesterday John W. and I mostly hung around the Butterfly Garden/Fred's Circle area and watched birds from the path. Much of what is listed here was found in that area, but our flyover Bluebirds were seen near Barking Dog Corner.

   The Hooded Mergansers were seen on Phair's Pond - a nice surprise!    

   We saw a beautiful Fox Sparrow, which was also a highlight.

Here are some photos from the day:
