The bird was seen today (Susan Hazelwood, Barb Duncan, Robert Brundage & 
son, Jim & Julie Lundsted).  Intersection of Blue Stem Ridge & Raccoon Run 
Trails at around 10:30- 11am.

Also - singing male BLUE GROSBEAK....another first for the area.  Seems the 
hard work opening
up the prairie/savannah area is working!!
