Out of the woods

Superior morning - time to get the early nets up

  Just got back into Le Big Smoke, after over five weeks at the remote Thunder Cape Bird Observatory field station. It will no doubt take a few days to readapt to showers and flushing toilets, the whole 'lots of people' thing, a fridge filled with impossible wonders, and no Lake Superior in which to nakedly leap. I feel like Dersu Uzala. Hopefully I won't get arrested for chopping down trees in the city and chastising water merchants, as he did. Him all same man.
  Many wacky stories from the bush to follow.  Oh, I bumped into David Suzuki today in a washroom at Thunder Bay Airport, surreal.
