It will be difficult to complete the ring. I don't know if it's that important either. So I won't get hung up on it.

Emiliano gave us a clue.
There is an entry that may lead us to the nest of the magical H's.

April 21st by @eme

The area is the breeding area of ​​H21 & H44.
So there is a glimmer of hope that the nest tree is actually still standing.
Whether Team H still maintains the territory here... oh, I miss them and wish this special young couple finally a consolidated territory. :nod:
