Rain on the roof woke us up at 4:00 this morning. It continued to rain off and on all morning. Our first rain of 2010, and very much needed, but not a very promising day for a bird walk. However nine people joined me at 2:00 for my weekly bird walk. Less than last week, they more than made up for it in cooperation and enthusiasm. Someone in the office had tipped them off that we had identified 22 birds last week, but I cautioned them that we had better weather last week and more people. But, at the end of the day we broke last weeks record with 23 birds!
