Re: Ornithology B/C

With the disclaimer that I haven't heard a Carolina Wren in years... Carolina Wren songs are noticeably lower-pitched than and imo have a more musical, thrush-like quality to them with rounder notes.

Re: Find others going to the same invites!

I intend to be at all Division B SoCal invites (Ladera Vista, Kraemer and Mesa-Wilson), and will probably be proctoring events at all these if I'm there. Maybe I'll be at Troy, maybe not, who knows.
