Our friend and Fyke Treasurer John Brotherton was injured in the line of duty Saturday while serving as a citizen scientist on the Christmas Bird Count. At the start of the count, he took a misstep, fell and fractured his left hip.
Long story short, "he now has three new screws to go with his bionic knees" and will be going to a rehab facility tomorrow.
You can send John a get-well card to his home address and it will be passed along to him with all deliberate speed:
249 E. Crescent Ave.
Mahwah, NJ 07430
Get well soon, John! The word is that the count was at least five birds shy without you.
