The birds flew the coop
During the dove banding... (What dove banding?) oh yeah, that's right, there were no doves! When we got to the site, there had been no doves caught for banding. But Sarah, the Pennsylvania game commission intern, showed us the traps and the bands and told us how they get banded. So... we went to the spillway. There were people throwing loaves of bread at these HUGE carps which were flailing around on top of each other, but were too stupid to swim under the bridge where there was more room.
