List of sightings from Birding Site Tour

I made some notes on a few, to give a sense of the spread. My house is just feeder birds and things heard in the yard before and after trips. Nine miles south of Eureka, and easily within our local circle. The Red-breasted Mergansers were quite unexpected. Shore birds were just starting, probably slowed down a little by the relentless cold weather and north winds.

I had 49 species at Lake Leatherwood in just over three hours.
