(Birding) Highlights of the Week
A friend and I took a 24-hour trip to Aroostook County to look for Barnacle Geese. They proved elusive, but we did see a Greater White-fronted Goose, an immature Snow Goose, and many thousands of Canada Geese.
And, while not exactly a "highlight", we also found a recently struck and killed Long-eared Owl in Fort Fairfield (a species I've only seen alive at a rehab center).
Wild Edible of the Week
Jenny made some delicious jello using the juice of some Fox Grapes that I foraged.

I completed five morning meditations and five gratitude journal entries for my Meditation and Gratitude Moon Challenge.
