Crowphy News -- Good and Bad

DSCN9297-001The results of the annual Christmas Bird Count competition between Fyke and the BCAS are in.

The bad news is that the BCAS had 93 species and Fyke had 77. With a14-bird handicap, Fyke still lost by two.

The good news is that Fyke has a 16-bird handicap next December.

Congrats, BCAS! Please take care of the beloved Crowphy (above) until Fyke takes possession of it someday.

Celery Farm Sunset 021717

IMG_2894Happened to be walking near the Pirie-Mayhood Tower near sunset yesterday and figured it might be worth hanging around.

The photo above is from the tower.

The one below is from the edge of Lake Appert -- accessible because of all of Gabriele Schmitt's hard work. (Thanks, Gaby!)
