Several Turkey Creek regulars met to search for migrants on one of the last
few weekends before migration ends - Phyllis Mansfield, Ken Laborde, Bob
Sicolo, and Ken Allie.  The most exciting event of the morning was seeing a
group of 6 Broad-Winged Hawks circling overhead.  Bob Paxson arrived later
in the morning - by that time, he said, the kettle of Broad-Wings had grown
to more than 15.  Most of the migrants from yesterday had left overnight; we
saw almost nothing at first but suddenly at 10:30AM a mixed flock appeared
in the mature hammock.  Although numbers were small we ended the morning
