It was an outdoor day! After a delicious breakfast at Bubba’s, we spent the entire morning hiking South Park. One of our 48 species was the Wilson’s Phalarope! We have been looking since we arrived here. The little dudette was hiding! After she lays her clutch, she leaves them to the male to tend, and she finds another boyfriend, and she was out looking all over the pond, but we didn’t see another male. We could tell that we have not hiked in a while – time to enjoy!!!

After lunch at home, we crashed for a while, then ate an early dinner, left-over spaghetti and salad. Joe led the tour of the refuge with Margaret, Bill, and Devon, an intern with the forest service. It was a great ride and a lovely evening. The only mammal we didn’t see that we had hoped to see was a wolf. Arrived back home around 9:15.
