The the second-to-last 2015 Early Birders Morning Walk was was rich in rain and then some more rain. Six dedicated birders noticed 28 species from under hoods and umbrellas, braving damp dirt roads and muddy trails to do so. Thank goodness for beverages and tasty baked goods to help us dry out by the viewing window (where we added a few more species). As she’s done this year so many times, we appreciate Mae Mayville for eBirding the results for us.
