Temp started at 45, ended at 73. Sunny, light wind, low humidity.
Slow, leisurely hike on well defined and groomed trails. Saw a few deer - no bucks, only does and larger fawns. Birds were somewhat active at first but then stayed in the brush or much higher up. We saw Turkey Vultures, Black Buzzards, a few raptors as well as an American Kestrel and a Loggerhead Shrike. Saw a few Orange Crowned Warblers (photo attached). Not much else to report.
