Celery Farm Raven

IMG_0323Marsh Warden Stiles Thomas was nice enough to take me to a site by the Celery Farm where a what we believe to be a Common Raven was calling repeatedly and loudly.

It perched, called (a begging call?), flew around a bit, and repeated the process.

It did not seem to mind our temporary presence.

More on ravens and crows here.

(Thanks, Stiles!)

Save the Date: Pirie - Mayhood Tower Dedication

DSCN9865 DSCN0005-002


Save the date -- Sunday, Sept. 27, at 9 a.m. -- for the new Pirie - Mayhood Tower dedication.

Mike Limatola, Stiles Thomas and I talked it over and realized that the plaque at the new Pirie - Mayhood Tower should honor both folks that the tower is named for, and have a dedication where both families can attend.

We hope you can attend, too. It’s right after the Hour on the Tower. Above are the before and after photos of the tower.
