Team Notes

Participants: Maggie Thomas; (Llewellyn) Patrick Hannigan

Weather: Clear, cool to cold then relatively mild

Location: Lake Pine abode in Medford NJ

Time At Location: 24 hrs minus cooking and bathroom time

Wow - scaup was a big surprise

Anecdotes:
Since not much had been coming in lately, expectations were low, but hopes high. To make things interesting, we made this a contest: which count would be greater - number of bird species OR number of ingredients in my chicken soup (keeping it all bird-related). The soup had 36 ingredients put in over the course of a couple of weeks and kept going in a slow cooker (no one has been poisoned and it really is yummy). Check the bird stats to see which won!
