Gillam Park 4/24/2009

I went to Gillam Park this morning with the plan of stopping at Murray park on the way home. It was pretty birdy there from the start. I just walked down to the oxbow lake and back, foregoing the upland route. I still spent 2.5 hours there and managed to get 44 species and 6 FOS birds – Mississippi Kite, House Wren, Marsh Wren, Sedge Wren, Nashville Warbler, and Little Blue Heron. As I was leaving I saw activity at the new Audubon Arkansas center and remembered that they were going to pile hay today for insulation. I decided to skip Murray Park and help.
