At 10 am, juvenile osprey on nest, and adult male on perch. 2 other
ospreys were flying in the area much of the morning. At 11:40, the

plovers, 5 Semipalmated sandpipers, 2 D.C. Cormorants, Ring billed gulls.

Many human visitors at the center today. One little girl was very much
interested in one of our books that had the bird songs playing.
