Clear, cool

Walked from the west parking lot to long bridge and back.  The
changing of the guard has been accomplished.  The beauty of the
fall colors combined with a few good birds and a lovely morning
made for a nice outing.  However, it was not a particularly 
solitary morning.  Plenty of photographers out and volunteers 
were mulching part of the Lake Trail as I left.

A raft of 70+ ducks, all in a concentrated ball on the water, 
unfortunately went unidentified, but I did find several species of
more cooperative water birds. YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERs dominated 
numbers in the woods with at least 50+ birds. A large flock of 
AMERICAN ROBINs at the west parking lot also made its presence
known as well as a large flock of cackling COMMON GRACKLEs near
long bridge.  Two INDIGO BUNTINGs and a single DARK-EYED JUNCO 
were opposite bookends, evidence of the changing of the guard. 
Best birds of the morning were a single LINCOLN'S SPARROW
