       There werre five birders at Winged Deer Park this morning.  However, 
these were hardly "Beginners."  Present were Rick Knight, Rob Biler, John 
Hay, Ellen Parker (fresh off Fred Alsop's Ornithology course) and, yours 
truly.  It did not rain, but it might just have well!  The birds were either 
scarce or secretive:  Turkey Vulture, Yellow-billed Cuckoo (heard), Red-bellied 
Woodpecker, Northern Flicker (heard), Pileated Woodpecker (heard), Eastern 
Wood-Pewee (heard), Red-eyed Vireo (heard), Blue Jay, Carolina Chickadee, 
Turfted titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch (heard), Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, 
Swainson's Thrush, Cedar Waxwing, American Redstart, Canada Warbler (great 
at two nearby males), Scarlet Tanager (heard), Northern Cardinal, Indigo 
Bunting and American Goldfinch.  Hardly an impressive list.
       Next BBC field activity is the Natural Tunnel Weekend on the weekend 
of May 23 and 24 led by Bill Grigsby.  Bill will post more info about the 
weekend soon.
       On the weekend of May 29-31 we will be going to the Cumberland 
Mountains.  It is important to make your plans now......I will not be able to 
guarantee rooms if you wait too long!
