The little bit of rain Turkey Creek received overnight did nothing to
improve the birding; in fact, it was harder to find the birds today.  About
mid-morning we met Courtney Carlson and later we came across Herman
Bechtel - we all finished the rest of the morning together.  In spite of the
lack of migrants we somehow managed to locate................
