I think Alice's email was meant to bring smiles. I know it did for me. Much appreciated, Alice - esp. right now!

We all know spring migration will be fast and furious, as always, despite the Coronavirus. Please remember that Governor Whitmer’s Stay Home, Stay Safe guideline, although they permit us to go out and exercise (and bird), don’t permit us to go in groups of any size other than our own households. If you are birding out there, in Ann Arbor parks which are open, or anywhere else, remember to maintain 6 feet between you and other people. If you are ill, stay home.
