Yes it should be re-scheduled. All of groups that can make it will come. Don't be wimps. Sarah Nemeth, how about covering those Herons nesting at 3817 oglethorpe street in Hyattsville

HAHA! I was a bit thrown when I got that cryptic tip in the mail ;-) Do you have any way of sending me some photos? I'm not sure I could get to them w/out trespassing on someone's lawn. You can email them to me at sarahn@patch.com or just let me know if you think the homeowners would be OK with me calling them. Sarah
