I made it! The training finished early.
I might have contacted one of the instructors at a few points and been like “hey this is dragging for the love of god hurry it up” but I’d like to believe me and the other 31 attendees benefitted from my actions. I went ahead and took the practice exam and scored a 93%, so I’m hoping to do the actual certification exam tomorrow morning since I’d already planned on using that time for completing the training.
Also, the 1 tree I have seems to have become a roosting spot for a bunch of noisy European starlings. I don’t mind them as birds, except they’re fucking noisy. Hell, it could be like 4 of them making all that noise. All day long they yell at each other. Maybe me, too, since I switched to straight sunflower seed in the feeder and they haven’t figured out how to eat those yet with the husks. And I stopped refilling the suet feeders. Fingers crossed they move on soon. Today was less noisy than yesterday.
