Road Trip: Part 1 (update)
November 3- Vassar College, catching saw-whets at the station i worked at the last 4 years. We caught 31 in about 5 hours. Compare this to 575 hours for 95 owls in Boise, and you can imagine my delight.

November 5- Vassar again. Visited some of my professors and went to the Beech Tree Pub and Grill for the last time.
November 7-8 Atlanta, GA, visiting a Vassar friend for a couple nights. She has promised to have us acquainted with several gems of southern culture, starting with Waffle House. Emily took us to The Flying Biscuit for grits and fried green tomatoes, then to The Land Trust, a communal housing area among an unstructured property of gardens, playgrounds, forest, and emu pens. We then climbed Stone Mountain, a giant granite rock formation in the middle of an otherwise flat landscape. Finally we went to a drive-in theater to see Due Date, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galafinakis. Way too many similarities in that movie to be pure coincidence. Thanks Emily for a great time in Atlanta!
