Despite the chilly temperature, 14 birders joined leaders Bryan Henson and Allison Gallo to look for birds at Bles Park on the morning of November 17. Highlights of the walk included great looks at Red-shouldered Hawks and a Fox Sparrow among our common wintering species. The most numerous species seen were Red-winged Blackbirds with a count of 120. All total, 32 species were seen and/or heard; the complete list can be found on eBird at https://ebird.org/checklist/S61519317
