Nice Anne. We have had them here since Saturday when just about all the hordes of colorful birds departed. Can the rain crows (Southern Md dialect for Yellow-billed) be far behind. It seems all the late warblers overflew us as we are down to breeding spp. John --- John and Sue Gregoire 5373

That’s the one, Marty! I was just looking into that to see if they still sell it through the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in Geneva. About 15 years ago, it was still available there for $10… It’s on Amazon for $45… :-( Thank you! Sincerely, Chris On May 25, 2020, at 6:23
