A big "THANK YOU" to all the volunteers as well as elected officers who work so hard behind the scenes that plan to make our ASM organizational meetings come to pass, taking care of the tedious up to the monumental tasks that ensure successful events such as this past weekend at Lake of the Ozarks State Park!

In spite of this weekend's heat and humidity, many of us were able to ferret out some good birds! We had to work for many of them. I believe that extra effort makes the sightings, camaraderie and occasions more memorable, bonding us not only tighter with each other but also to our feathered friends with which we seek a more soulful relationship.

As always, it was great seeing, visiting and birding with old friends while in the process of making new friends.

Until next time, Good Birding!
