On a very pleasant, (cool, overcast) morning Nathan Tea and his mother Stella, were joined by Charles Brohawn, and we walked around the outside of the fort and back into the closed-off wetlands area, thanks to Wendy Alexander, the volunteer naturalist at the fort, who also joined us.  While we didn’t see anything exceptional, we had a good list and an easy walk; Both Horned and Pied-billed Grebes were out and next to each other for easy comparison, we had a nice, close look at a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, and various sparrows came out for good looks as well, and the regular Coots were swimming close and letting us enjoy them at close range.
