Max, Shrek & team got up at 5AM today to prepare for their 1st official survey day. We got lucky because it was gray and chilly out with a light sprinkle= perfect working temperatures for the dogs. They are able to work longer and further when they can keep cool and comfortable. Meanwhile hooter team is busy scoping out road conditions for the rest of the study area and setting up Spotted Owl call points. A long day of driving is in store for them. Luckily we all had a pizza party the night before and everyone went to bed well fed and glad to "sleep in." Hey, 5AM is better than 3:30AM!
