Welcome to our New Members
April - The Veep's Peep
Finally, early April issued in the beginning of spring with sightings of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Louisiana Waterthrushes, Palm Warblers, Chimney Swifts, Vesper Sparrows, Ospreys, Red-winged Blackbirds, and other welcomed viewings after a long, cold winter (which, by the way, had its own treasured sightings).
The days are longer and warmer. It’s time to get out and see! Check out the Resources page and scroll down to see a spring arrivals list.
Also, PBC has an abundance of field trips in April, including trips to Whitacre Farm, Beaver Dam Trail, Huntington Beach State Park and Georgetown (South Carolina) area, and the Randolph County Preserve.
The PBC meeting program on Thursday, April 17, features Dennis Burnette speaking on “Birding Vacations: Including Birdwatching in your Travels.”
Plan ahead to participate in the Spring Bird Count on Saturday, May 3. Teams will ride and walk through designated areas in Guilford County to count all birds seen and heard.
For more details on PBC events and how to participate, visit the calendar and/or read about them in the Yearbook.
Note a couple of additional opportunities to participate in PBC activities. Do you have an app that you regularly use to help with identifying birds? Consider posting a brief description on the PBC website blog feature “Birder to Birder.” You may enter your comments directly onto the page.
Would you like to become familiar with the rich history of PBC, dating back to the 1930s? Assist the History and Archives committee in a project to index annual scrapbooks. You may participate in a group indexing activity on April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Library or index a scrapbook at a time of your convenience by expressing your preference on the Contact Us form.
PBC encourages all member participation and invites non-members to check us out! You might like what you see.
