Subject: Hilton Pond 08/01/18 (Mammals Galore Around Hilton Pond)
Although we're behind on our Hilton Pond reports and apologize for it, we do want to bring you up to date on local happenings and late summer bird banding results—including Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. To that end we've just posted installment #677 of "This Week at Hilton Pond" for 1-31 August 2018. It's all about a trio of mammal species we encountered at or near the Center—one of which is historically rare for our locale. The photo essay is at <>

Included in the write-up is a link to a surprisingly long list of all mammals observed at Hilton Pond Center since 1982.

As always we provide a list of birds banded and recaptured during the period, plus miscellaneous nature notes and acknowledgement of folks who contributed in support of the Center's work during the period.

Happy Nature Watching!
