Our JBLM Eagles Pride GC birdwalk for September had a low species count, but a high fun count for the 13 of us, with gorgeous weather, albeit being very cool (37degF) at start and FINALLY warming up in the home stretch (62degF) with no wind and not a cloud in the sky.

Highlights include the following:

WOOD DUCK - 8 at the 9th hole pond

OSPREY - only the second sighting this year PIED-BILLED GREBE - Seven at Hodge Lake with a mix of juveniles and adult birds RED CROSSBILL - two at Hodge Lake TOWNSEND'S WARBLER - two in the brilliant sunshine at the 12th hole pond area Misses include European Starling, California Scrub-jay, and American Crow.
