The pollen is a fallin'

The last couple of days we have just been resting up trying to get over our allergies or sinus problems.  The pollen has really been bad.  When the wind blows, you can see the yellow cloud coming off the trees!!

We just spent the day with Mark and Teri McClelland, our friends we just met the first of the year while we were working at Santa Ana NWR.  They are volunteering at a state park 3 hours north of here and decided they would come down to spend some time with us.

This picture was taken at Magee Marsh in Ohio where they came by to see us while we were volunteering at Ottawa NWR the month of May.  If you haven't been to Magee Marsh in May you are missing something.  The birding is WONDERFUL.  I am now
spoiled...there is nothing like it.            

They arrived here at Moosehorn at 8:30 am.  We gave them a tour of the refuge, then drove in to Calais for lunch.  We hiked one of our trails before spending the rest of the afternoon chit chatting.  Another great day with nice people.

    Carolyn, you have an amazing memory for plant names! We really enjoyed our tour of Moosehorn.
