Upcoming Club Events
1. Evening on Bird Banding, Thursday, 28 November 2013, 7:00 pm, The Exploration Place
This is a three-part presentation: a brief overview talk on the nature and results of bird banding; a presentation by Vi Lambie on the very impressive bird-banding operation at Mugaha Marsh, and talks by several club members about their experiences as banders. (“Best job I ever had!” said one.) Be sure to come along and brighten a gloomy November day.
2. Christmas Bird Count
This year’s CBC is to be held on Sunday, 15 December.
1. Very Unexpected Reaction
The Club’s executive have been planning a social event for members and a friend in the new year, and enquired about a liquor licence. The liquor inspector replied that it would be necessary to impose restrictions, not because of the alcohol, but because of the nudity. Nudity? We’re a NATURALIST Club.
2. Winter Sightings
Keep your eyes open for the first Snowy Owls of the winter, and the return of the First Avenue Gyrfalcon. Deer, moose, and wolf sightings have also been accelerating with the first snows.
