Louisiana Waterthrush re-found by Solodars bobbing along in ditch on  eastern 
end of Park near Jack Van's pond.  The Bewick's Wren was re-found  by Steve 
near the Bubbler and then by others but missed by our group while  seeing the 
waterthrush.
 
Last bird of the day had been reported by Shawn Clubb and Val in the pines  
across from the stables..(where the Barred Owl family roosted last year)...a  
young but full-size Great Horned 
Owl.  A return trip about 645pm found him/her on the same branch of  the 
right-most of two pines in the hillock clump.  He took off about 7pm,  flying back 
and forth from the pines toward the big house on Magnolia.  We  hope he was 
successful in his hunt.
