Friday Weekly Summary posts provide a weekly update, and let you know, even if there are no NGR birds reported in a given week, that The NGR is alive, well, and still on the job! NGR weeks always start on Saturdays! :^)

THIS WEEK'S NOTES AND HIGHLIGHTS: Many inshore or onshore shearwaters were reported this week, some stranded, emaciated, and dead or dying, and some were brought in for rehab. Michael Brothers of Florida and Tim Keyes and Russ Wigh of Georgia all had interesting comments concerning the plights of Greater Shearwaters found dead or dying.
