Comments:
Dan A drove us along a portion of the northern auto tour, then to hunters' check point and back; high, thin clouds, filtered sun, calm and cool at ~ 50 degrees. We chatted with Scott Hoppe and Ed Pandalfino; briefly with Joan Humphrey and another woman. There was a large docent-led trip looking at waterfowl at Lot C and a lot of shotgun blasts from gun owners. A river otter was swimming in one of the managed wetlands along the auto tour route. We were somewhat rousted while looking at a reported Swamp Sparrow by a woman asking/telling us to move our vehicle out of the traffic flow area (which it already was); while Dan went to better park the vehicle, the man, driving the lady the 25 yards to us down an otherwise habitat area road, took umbrage with a photo taken of his vehicle/license plate, then put it in reverse to come assert his minor authority and purpose while Dan K assured him he was in public and all photos were fair game.
