Back from the Adirondacks

A good time had by Team Fisher (myself, Omyia Damaj, Graham Montgomery and Alexa Class Freeman). We braved 4 am wake ups to hike up mountains and find thrush after thrush after thrush. The blackflies ranged from non-existent to horrendous, big mammals crashing through the understory were always Graham and never a bear, and we were entertained by flying squirrels and luna moths. Thanks to Frank Gill for tremendous hospitality. Now back in Ithaca for the summer.

The view from Slant Rock lean-to. We spent two nights here, surrounded by Swainson's and Bicknell's Thrushes.
