Daily report — Sunday 5/22

Hello –

To coin a phrase, today was not yesterday. Birds banded today totaled 11.6% of birds banded yesterday. Lauren and Liz migrated to America and Andy, Marygrace and Peggy came to join us. We hope they bring us good luck!

Appledore greetings from Andy, Bill, Katherine, Marygrace, Peggy and Anthony
