Hi all, For the Cayuga Bird Club's next newsletter, I thought it might be interesting to collect people's perspectives on birding during the lockdown (and during the strange weather we've had in May). A short paragraph or even a single sentence per person could be interesting. Anything is welcome, from notable feeder sightings, to birds I may not have seen were it not for the lockdown, to the busier-than-normal state of birding hotspots. A simple account that may feel uninteresting today could be insightful to a reader in 20 years looking back to see "what it was like during the lockdown", even an account like "nothing changed for me, really".
Please send me any such contributions off-list by tomorrow evening (Sunday, 6pm). Yes that leaves only a day and a half. Yes I'm a procrastinator. No I haven't done my taxes :-). Let me know if you want your contribution to be anonymous (or use a pseudonym), e.g., if you want to mention a furlough or unemployment circumstance. Thanks.
