Klehm has reopened after its holiday recess.  As I noted in my first email, winter hours are from 9:00 am-4:00 p.m.  Tuesday through Saturday, closed Sunday and Monday.  They will resume Sunday hours in the spring beginning April 1.

 Yesterday, I had a flock of 37 Common Redpolls feeding in Birch catkins at the far west end of the west loop.  There were seen out there again today.
