Out with Matt
Matt and I went out for a morning on the town. We stopped at Wacker first to do a check. The Wacker pair, Rahn and Joe, are currently incubating eggs, but Rahn didn’t get up to let us have a peek.
After that, off to UIC. We did a quick circuit of the bottom of the building first, looking for prey items. Matt found a really beautiful woodcock wing, so I put it in my pocket to take back to the museum.
[editorial note: I completely forgot about this wing until days later, our cats Puck and Hobbes were going NUTS trying to get my coat down off the coat rack. I chased them off, but they would not leave it alone. I thought maybe there was a spider or something, so I pulled it off the rack to check it out. That’s when I noticed my coat smelled a bit “off”. Yuck! I guess I’ll get it dry cleaned — my coat, not the wing]
UIC is incubating eggs too and we did get a look at Rosie’s bands.
