Checklist Comments:    It was a beautiful, clear morning with no wind, so the water was still on the impoundments and river. Temp of about 41F at the start. We birded the dike, the river bank, and the Edge Trail. We met a F&W worker who was removing multiflora rose, and a habitat management volunteer who told us about some of the wildlife. Thanks to all participants.
