Our team is comprised of former naturalists of Greenkill’s Outdoor Environmental Education program who have donated their time to walk around being eaten by mosquitoes and gnats, being sleep deprived, being crammed into a vehicle, and eating way too much chocolate and drinking way to much caffeine, along with sometimes being rained on for hours and gathering suspicious looks from homeowners as we all try to see the Blue Jay in their back yard. This year Mark Schilling, Fred VonMechow, Scott Reichert and Dan Zmoda will spend 24 hours identifying as many bird species as possible in the hope we will not be embarrassed by the middle school champions. Again.
