Nineteen of us followed a slightly modified route from usual due to plant
growth in one area. Highlights include a very well seen/heard MACGILLIVRAY'S
WARBLER just beyond the pond at hole #12 and a similarly heard/seen HERMIT
WARBLER in the trees around the tee box on hole #13. The latter species was
extremely vocal, and ranged all around that area (and us) for the entire
time we were there (we had to let a golfer through, so had quite a bit of
time). Everyone got a good view of the bird, which could be nesting nearby.
Note: This was one of only two times we didn't see Red Crossbills on the
