As most of you already know, Walter wasn’t feeling well last week. Monday morning he was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was unable to speak. We were worried that he had a stroke, but doctors believe he has encephalitis. He started speaking Monday night and I (and many others) also spoke to him on the phone Tuesday morning. He sounded really good but will be in hospital a while longer. In the meantime, we are carrying on with the raptor watch. If you can get to the park, please do so and let me know what you saw. You know how it goes, we need the type of bird of prey and the number you saw. Any other items such as butterflies, different types of birds, mammals and names of other people at the watch will help. As well, if you have photos you can send them along. My email address is "sammielee at rogers.com (replace AT with @)"
We may not be as timely with the blog reports as Walter is but we’ll get to it as soon as we can!
Right now, the easiest way to stay in touch with your fellow raptor watchers is on the Facebook group. The direct link is https://www.facebook.com/
