A Hint


Javier I really like the way you think. You might want to listen to the sound again with this in mind....the sound is made by something manmade that runs on two tracks and uses electricity. I have tried twice to upload a picture hint but our internet connection isn't working well enough.

Actually the sound is the St Charles Street car rolling down the tracks on St Charles in front of the guest house. New Orleans is one of the few cities that has street cars. They run on tracks and are powered by overhead electrical lines. Mrs. Retford

The transect area is 78.5 meters squared. So each hunting area is 19.62 meters squared. When hunting in these areas many times you have to crawl through thorny plant called rubus, or wild blackberry. Your job is to check all the leaves looking for evidence that the leaves have been eaten. Some of the caterpillars roll themselves up in leaves, others are found sandwiched between leaves. So far, we have found that their favorite food is water oak.
