Field Notes
We are happy because we didn't find a winter moth in our location. A problem I ran into was that we had to investigate multiple times. We are surprised because we did not find the winter moth when we expected to find it. We see trees we smell fresh air we hear the wind in the trees.

Hi Yellow Team 2,

Great work monitoring for winter moth! We are glad you were able to search different trees and went out multiple times. It looks like you did a thorough search.

It looks like your coordinates were off (unless you were conducting your investigation out in the ocean). Please respond to this comment with the correct coordinates and we'll get you back on track.
