We walked to work on this beautiful morning, identifying a life bird, the Alder Flycatcher in the trees at the Visitor’s Center. It was a pretty crazy day, work on more learning in the bookstore, LOTS of people with many questions. Each time we work, we learn something new and get better at the job. I helped some folks know where to go to find a Three-toed Woodpecker, so that will help us to find it as well, as well as finding Eagle Lake – we’ll drive out there some evening.
Max and Joann came over after work to pick up John’s old binoculars, as they are headed to Seward tomorrow to do the same trip we did over the weekend – they were really excited.
Dinner was chicken/veggie/mushroom/pasta/alfredo, one of our favorites, and it basically takes any veggies we have on hand. We have crashed for the evening.
