Welcome to our New Members
January-The Veep's Peep
Interesting winter visitors in December prompted excitement and studied comparisons as PBC members shared their sightings and photos of the Ross’s Goose, Snow Goose and White Fronted Goose. The Ross’s Goose and Snow Goose provided good looks and photo opportunities as word got around. As always, thanks to PBC members Marty Wall, Jim Strickland and Lou Skrabec for sharing their photos.
New Year… New Birders! For those interested in beginning birding, Dennis Burnette’s Beginning Birder Walk on Sunday, January 4th is the perfect way to start the new year! Join Dennis at 1:30 at the Kathleen Clay Edwards Library on Price Park Road. This is the second of four seasonal beginner bird walks being offered. The emphasis will be on learning to identify birds using clues such as size, shape, markings, habitat, and behavior. This is a great way to get started on a life-long hobby in a relaxed, no pressure setting. Experienced birders are welcome too!
White Street Landfill Field Trip
The field trip to the White Street Landfill, led by Carolyn Allen has been rescheduled and will take place on January 10. Mark your calendars for this popular outing. We’ll surely see some interesting sparrows, raptors and ducks. We will meet in the parking lot of the Congregational United Church of Christ, 400 W Radiance Drive, to carpool into this city facility. This is important so that our birding group’s cars will not interfere with trucks that are regularly at the landfill. Contact Carolyn Allen to confirm your attendance. I hope to see you there!
