A Bird Count to Honor Ann Redelf
Greetings Birders! Michaela here to let you know that early birds truly do get the worm. I am a student at UMD and I am currently interning with Marketing at Glensheen.
Early in September at the Glensheen Historic Estate, September first through the tenth, we had many people participate within the Ann Redelf’s Bird Count on the grounds. A group of University Seniors and other community members held this bird count in honor of Ann Redelf, who passed away suddenly April 2020.
This bird count was held from 9 am to 5 pm, anyone was welcome to enter. There was three people who found over 20 bird types! Barb Arke and Mary Gabrys had the highest bird count of 26. Gregory Garmer came in as a solo birder with the count of 23 bird types.Harold Nordin, Eloyes Hill, and Jeff Davis were next in the top bird counts with 21 bird types.
Other participating birders included Marie Fegley, Bill Miner, David Yount, Geiger Yount, Louise Levy, and Cheryl Reitan. Congratulations toeveryone who participated!
