October 11 - Warren Geeen Acres/Glenhurst Meadows

No rarities were found today but some good sparrows were seen, along with some other nice species. This spot is a former golf-course which has laid fallow for several decades now, save for the trails that are maintained by the Green Acres folks.

Some "late in the season" birds were Green Heron and Solitary Sandpipers, and Red-Eyed Vireo. While woodpeckers seen included Red-Headed, Red-Bellied, Downy, Northen Flicker, and Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker.
Raptors included Red-Shouldered, Red-Tailed, and Harrier plus American Kestrel.

A Tennessee Warbler was a nice find, but the predominant species seen were sparrows. today's list included Chipping, Field, Savannah, Song, Lincoln's, Swamp, White0-Throated, White-Crowned, Dark-Eyed Junco and Eastern Towhee.
