Thanks, Alan, for your informative and enjoyable reporting from the Eastern Frontier. I will miss the daily updates about as much as you miss being there.

The Ground Squirrel Gazette
June 9, 2019
Today was a lovely and quiet day at MHQ. A straggle of flycatchers, buntings, tanagers etc. graced the trees. A GHO dismembered a ground squirrel to entertain the tourists. A Least Chipmunk ran onto my shoe so I gave it some seeds.
Blue-winged Teal, Eastern Kingbirds and Black Terns are increasing and seem to have arrived late.
A possible Least Flycatcher was at Benson Pond. Fields was slow.
Your loyal correspondent returns home tomorrow. Any vagrants found in the morning will be posted.
