Thumbs-up to the Advocate for the migratory bird special - my children and I enjoyed identifying the birds we've seen here. Also, a great thumbs-up to the Advocate for the front page story on Korean War veteran Demetrio Gutierrez and for having the pictures of other veterans in another section on Veterans Day.
