Bluebirds, Bill and Louis

Hi John:
1.  Sue and I are now at Long Point for the summer.  Kept the last issue of Nature Society News at the Point, and read (more closely, now I met you) your excellent banding article.  We subscribed to The NS News for many years, and a 25th wedding anniversary present to my wife was a visit to Griggsville Illinois.  Lucky her!
2.  Spent Saturday morning with Bill Reid updating my Bluebird housing at my Christmas Tree farm.  Much appreciated.  My neighbour, Bud McDonald was most appreciative of Bill stopping by to band a successful brood on a graveyard site adjacent to his home.
3.  Guess we’ll have to get some Martins for Bill next year.
Good to know people in higher places, thanks, Lou.
