The weather was pleasant (61degF to start and 71degF at the end) with partly
cloudy skies for the nineteen of us that took in the Eagles Pride Golf
Course today. Highlights included a well-seen/heard BLACK-THROATED GRAY
WARBLER, and a MACGILLIVRAY'S WARBLER that was in the same vicinity. WESTERN
TANAGERS (17) were located nearly everywhere we walked. No crows and no Red
Crossbills -- a definite miss for today. The VAUX'S SWIFT and NORTHERN
ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOWS were new for the year.

The JBLM Eagles Pride GC birders meet the third Thursday of each month at
8:00AM. Starting point is Bldg # 1514, Driving Range Tee, Eagles Pride Golf
