Welcome to our New Members
Fall - The Veep's Peep
The fall migration promises good birding as migrants arrive and depart in the area. Members have reported some interesting sightings including the Golden-winged, Redstart, Cape May, Northern Parula, and Blackburnian warblers, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Scarlet Tanager, Cedar Waxwings, and numerous flycatchers.
Our field trip schedule for the year has commenced with September outings to the Bog Garden, Nat Greene Trail, and along the Deep River corridor. The Hawk Watch at Pilot Mountain on 9/27 offers birders an opportunity to see thousands of migrating raptors. This is truly one of the most rewarding outings, both in terms of sightings and an opportunity to participate in a Citizen Science project.
The PBC mission is to promote the study and protection of birds and other natural resources and to maintain a set of permanent records about the occurrence and abundance of birds in the area of Guilford County. And we do just that! The PBC Committees have worked hard to prepare an exciting and productive 2014-15 calendar. So get involved, have fun, and support our mission!
