Thanks, Barbara

Secondly, Potapaug is looking for people to cover Great Island via kayak for the Christmas Bird Count.  This is one of the best areas in the state for turning up something really good.  The count date is December 28th.

>From Barbara:

Anyone out there want to take on Great Island for the bird count? Clay Taylor has moved to Texas! Quite a loss for Potapaug!

Let me know. Thanks.
