Monday Dec 7th

Lynn here, taking over the writing duties of the day. Sue had other obligations at lunchtime and was unable to join us. So, I will try to do justice to Sue's great work and add to the list. On the AM ride through campus, I saw large groups of both Robins and Cedar Waxwings. I was hoping that mixed in with them we might have a chance for a Bohemian Waxwing. Bohemian Waxwings during the winter are found throughout much of Canada and southward in the western United States. In the east they occasionally venture south often times mixed in with groups of Cedar Waxwings.

Unfortunately come lunchtime we could only find one Cedar Waxwing in totaly, where did the 100 or so I saw this morning go?
