Hello from Leeds!

April 28th was a rainout, so here’s an update from a previous McMaster Biodiversity student, Teegan, who volunteered at Ruthven. Teegan is working on her Master’s degree in Leeds, England.

Some pictures she took in South Africa:

And, something more local (to her):

Hi Everyone,

Just thought I would send out a couple photos of a family of Mistle Thrush that are living on my campus. THey have chosen a very unusual location for a nest. I think its must be a bird’s version of the red-light district. THere are two young, and both adults at the nest everyday on my way to and from school.
