Joe Hammond's Spring 2002 Digiscoping Collection

Hi James,

This is Joe Hammond from Ohio here. I was the person with Adam Goloda from 15-31 March who had a Nikon 995. Anyway, I didn't want you to think I had forgotten about sending photos your way. I've got several ready to go (15 in phase one), but still have more. I haven't even started a trip report yet. I will get all of that to you at some point.

We had a great trip and netted 219 total bird species. I missed a few of those, but still ended up seeing 171 new ones. I think I'm still recovering from it! And Adam probably never will!

I hope migration is going well over there. Things are really getting busy over here now. By the way, we had a black-throated gray warbler just east of Columbus two days ago.

Take care,
