Wow, thank you for the article Sue? Really great stuff. I lived there for 20 years. What a great story. Thank you again. I wish I could have seen it.

I live right around here. It has been great seeing the birdwatchers come from all over the place so excited. They have been very kind and haven't been a nuisance at all. I am almost sad I'm not into birdwatching because I can't enjoy this to the same extent.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
