A cool day (55-64degF start to finish), but with a record 25 participants in today's JBLM Eagles Pride Bird Walk (including four of us from the Seattle Audubon 2002-2003 Master Birder Class), we didn't think we missed too many species (45 ID'd) that might be vocalizing or in sight. Lots of young "squeakers" along the way, with no significant highlights, except for the numbers of individuals from some species, as shown in the list below. Well, I guess the six YELLOW WARBLERS should count as a bit out-of-the-ordinary. Oh, and the fact that two HOUSE WRENS were still at the maintenance shed. One of the wrens was carrying food and entered the lamp area of the street-style light fixture that held the nest last year and this. (I sure hope I got the right years for our Master Birder class -- if not, I bet Kristin or Nancy or Rachel will let me know!)

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 Course, I-5 Exit 116, Mounts Road Exit. Upcoming walks include the following:
• August 16
• September 20
• October 18
Anyone is welcome to join us!
