Overcast for the entire walk (pouring rain 0705-0740 before we left, which likely kept the number of participants (9) lower than expected). Temp 52degF at start and 61degF at end - quite pleasant for the 6th anniversary of this walk. Highlights include FOY ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, BARN SWALLOW, and BROWN-HEADED COWBIRD; RED-TAILED HAWK on nest at Hodge Lake; and 32 YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS.

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:

* May 16
