It’s already Sunday! Can we even remember Friday? You can see that it was a good day – thank goodness, not a repeat of Thursday. The Acadian Flycatcher was “Christmas”. The Orchard Oriole was a delight – it’s been many years since I’ve held one. We catch very few Philadelphia Vireos or Am. Robins in the spring so those were fun. A Gray Catbird that we banded as a youngster on 28 August last fall received more colorful bling. The fog snuck in around 3:00 in the afternoon and stayed with us for the rest of the day. Most interesting observations were the Northern Shoveler that David Bonter flushed out of the Northern Valley and the 7 Glossy Ibis whose silhouettes glided through the gray behind the dorms.
Andy, Bill, David, Martha, Peggy, and Sally join the Mars people, Hannah and Katherine in sending belated waves from Appledore Is.
