Otto: What’s a stranded wood-pewee to do?
Wow. The facts blowing around in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy are staggering. The massive weather event took at least 160 human lives in the U.S. and Caribbean, knocked out power to 8.5 million U.S. customers and caused about $50 billion in damages.
The storm wreaked havoc on air travel, too, with airlines around the world canceling flights or rerouting them away from the areas that were hardest hit.
Meanwhile, here in St. Charles, we can add at least one more flight to that list of cancellations: the southern migration of a young eastern wood-pewee, Contopus virens.
