Thursday April 26 2012. 24 new birds; 15 recaps. It was windy and cold at the lake yesterday….another slow day.  Pat Lovallo had an interesting event with a Song Sparrow that she banded and released out the back door. As soon as she let it go and it flew 20 feet or so, a Sharp-shinned Hawk flew in and grabbed it. Nature isn’t always pleasant!  Later in the day, Lyn Jacobs worked on taking several wheel-barrow loads of brush cuttings down to the road for pick-up.  Marian Klik
