Birding in Uplands Park – Sunday, April 21, 2013

Hello once again, from Geoffrey:
We hope that you can make it once again for the next outing on Sunday, April 21 at 8:00 a.m., meeting in the large parking lot out at the tip of Cattle Point in Uplands Park.  We should be seeing more and more of the summer migrating birds, both on the ocean and inland.  Below is the list of birds that we saw last time.  We post our sightings on an international bird observation website called, from which birders can make bird lists and graphs from any place in the world.  This is our contribution.  Anyone can join online.  Friendship from Geoffrey, David, Brigitte and Jean Newell
