Checklist Comments:    A fine, sunny day with little breeze. There was no emergent vegetation yet in the impoundments, making for great visibility. A few species always or usually present on this trip in the past were missing: GBH, Belted Kingfisher, Eastern Bluebird. Count of Red-winged Blackbird is best estimate. We did not get to the loop around the lower impoundment. Thanks to all participants.
