Notes

Sunny with just a few clouds and fairly windy. Lots of horseflies around. Lilly pads, algae, some purple loosestrife, etc. Some songbirds , including a yellow finch. Spoke with some folks who showed a real interest in the testing so we chatted about it and explained how the tests work. Gave them WR cards they will share with their friends who are biologists. Glider planes flying nearby.
