Team Notes

Weather: 11 inches of rain. Winds in excess of 60 mph

Location: Cottage 200, The Village at Summerville, Summerville, SC, 29483

Time At Location: From indoors--about six hours

Notes:
This turned out to be a very unfortunate weekend for birding along the SC coast. I had had to take my feeders down so they didn't become missiles in the wind. I feel lucky to have seen 10 species. I wonder how any birds even survived the wind and rain accompanying Hurricane Matthew.

Anecdotes:
Nothing funny happened. We were among the lucky few to have had no damage to our home and surrounding trees.
