To add to Patrick's notes.

What he is calling Weldon Springs is what St. Louisans call the Blue
Grosbeak Trail.   (We went up there as Patrick's crew was coming down.
Nancy got a flyover of one of the Blue Grosbeaks, but my record of never
having seen one on the trail, despite numerous attempts over may years,
remains intact.)

The Bobolinks in the field below the top of the second hill seem to have
departed.  None of us saw them.

The location of the single singing Cerulean Warbler at Lost Valley is as
follows: Start counting the Hiking Trail signs as soon as you enter.   The
second sign is missing 1/2 of its structure, but the bird is located about
midway between the third and fourth signs, in sycamores on the right side of
the trail, but very close to it.   We did not have Ceruleans at the beaver
ponds.
