The Maryland Yellowthroat: Found Again
Dear Bay Weekly:
Re: Earth Journal (Vol. xii, No. 34: Aug. 19, 2004) The Maryland (aka Common) Yellowthroat.
I was a budding birder in 1948, but I still remember this little warbler as the Maryland yellowthroat. I had an old hardcover bird book that I dragged out into the garden and discovered this songster.
Thanks for the smile!

Droves from Ben Miller’s Museum Reviews
Dear Bay Weekly:
We had a very good weekend here at the Naval Academy Museum; very high attendance Saturday and Sunday. I can only attribute that to the fine article Ben Miller wrote for Bay Weekly [Enhancing Esprit through Common History: Vol. xiv, No. 21: May 25.] People must have read the article and come out in droves, despite the presence of the director. Thank you for the plug, and keep up the good work.
Director: U.S. Naval Academy Museum
