The weather is perfect, just a slight breeze.  The feeding station will be brimming with fresh fruit tomorrow a.m.  Stop by and say hello to Holiday Volunteer and Board President Jim Chapman who will be staffing the Visitors’ Center and promises to have fresh baked cookies on hand and a bird list that includes two new species listed this morning by Dan Jones, a most reliable resource.  First time for the Loggerhead Shrike and the Spotted Towee.
