Thursday Cancellation & Wednesday Highlights

Tomorrow morning's Prospect Park tour is cancelled. I hate to do this two weeks in a row, but I have a scheduling conflict. This morning's Green-Wood Cemetery trip was really nice with a few highlights. There's a species list below. Two interesting observations were the season's first House Wrens and the emergence of many Red Admiral butterflies. I'll post the past weekend's summary and some photos tomorrow evening.
