OCTOBER 25th - A little over 30 birders showed up for St. Petersburg Audubon's field trip at John Chesnut Park this morning.  It was almost jacket weather. There was no sign of any kind of fallout, but the group still found some nice birds including a sub-dault Bald Eagle, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Eastern Phoebe, Marsh Wren, Blue-headed Vireo, and both Magnolia and Black-throated Green Warblers.  See the photo, below, of the day's sapsucker photo'd by Sue Tavaglione.
Gino Muehleck was at Fort De Soto Park this morning and had both a Merlin and an American Kestrel as well as nine American Avocets resting at the East Beach Turnaround.
