🔶 If you recently received an email about an old order from the web store here you can disregard it. It was an unintended consequence of database maintenance.
🔶 🔶 I will be away from the studio and out birding from Saturday May 8 to Thursday May 20, and any orders received during that time will be shipped after I return on the 20th.
Thanks for your support and patience. Stay healthy and keep birding!
