The Ground Squirrel Gazette

Final Edition

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.

Until we meet again.
