For what it's worth again, I get most of my birding and other nature study
vicariously from the net these days. I teach English, so I don't have much
excuse to play in the woods. My interest hasn't slackened, but opportunity
is much reduced.
I look forward to the sightings posted here, and to the RBAs. I send the
RBAs and other items of interest--including the pocket gopher stuff--around
to other people on campus who have expressed an interest.
Birds seem to generate more interest on the whole than other species--for
one thing, they're easier to see and abundant. So I don't think pocket
gophers are in any danger of chasing birds off GABO-L.
As far as I'm concerned, bring on the pocket gophers, frogs,
salamanders--er, the slippery kind--whenever there's a need. I may not be
able to help, but I'm always interested.
Thanks for listening.
