January 6

Nasketucket Bird Club count--Mike LaBossiere, Pam Perry and me (the crazy rainsoaked team)

Saturday, January 6 -- Several "intrepid????" birders split up into two teams and scoured some of the conservation areas in Mattapoisett. These included the Munn Property, Nasketucket State Reservation, Eel Pond, the Martocci Property and the landfill.

One team stayed dry and had lots of coffee, the other team,, led by Pres. Mike, got drenched.
