Our Bird with BIRD Walk at Silver Sands this morning tallied 52 species -
highlights being Nelson's Sparrow and two very showy Marsh Wrens. Other than
that, sparrow and raptor numbers were low.  There were several very talented and
vocal Mockingbirds doing all kinds of songs including a great Yellow-breasted
Chat impression that had us running!  eBird list below.
