Saturday, November 12, 7:30 AM   Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area

This is a great time to visit this area. There should be lots of ducks around and the duck season is closed on this date. If you are interested, please call Doug Overacker at 324-1871. We would like to know how many people are interested in making this trip. Besides ducks, we may see hawks and other late migrants on this date.

Friday, December 16, 7:30 AM   Christmas Bird Count

We will be searching much of Clark County for as many birds as we can find on this date. We will meet at the regular place at the corner of Croft and Robert Eastman Roads. Then we will split up into groups to cover as many areas as we can. Last year we found 62 species in about average conditions. Let's see if we can do better this year. Call Doug Overacker at 324-1871 for more information.

The warblers are almost gone but later migrants are moving through the area. There are lots of kinglets around and we have been seeing a few Red-breasted Nuthatches. There was a Franklin's Gull on the beach for a couple days and a couple first year Lesser Black-backed Gulls have been around for awhile.

Lesser Black-backed Gull at Buck Creek State Park beach on October 16.
