I was away last week at the NAOC 2016 in Washington, DC. There don’t seem to have been any casualties while I was away. The Indigo Bunting (from July 5th!) is still in place, but I decided to call it today (8/26). Some skeleton and feather remains, but the beetles have long-since abandoned that carcass and nothing else is interested in it.
Here are the totals I’ve logged for Mar.–Jul. 2016:
I’m ready for the new ones (sadly) and hopeful that numbers on treated windows of the west alcoves will be way down:
Indigo Bunting skeleton still in the same spot off to the side of the northern entrance.
Thanks to Corey Riding and Chrissy Barton who kept an eye on the Noble Research Center while I’ve been out of town. Today, Corey found a HY Mourning Dove.
