May Picnic Meeting
The Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club will have our annual covered dish picnic on Monday, Mar 15, 2017, at 6:00pm at Coonskin park.
This is a potluck dinner, so bring a covered dish of your choice - main dish, dessert, or salad. Water and ice will be provided as will plastic plates, cups, dishes, table cloths, eating utensils.
We are aiming for shelter #19, where we have met the last few years. If for some reason #19 is not available when we get there, we will use either #18 or #20, which are in the same general area. At the Gorman area (on the right), turn left - pass through the gate and go up the hill - go all the way up the hill until you see several picnic shelters. Turn right into the parking lot for shelter # 19.
Anyone interested in birds is welcome. Hope to see you all there.

|In January, Lauren Merrill discussed PHENOLOGY at the monthly meeting of the bird club (Handlan Chapter).

The National Phenology Network is a great place to browse about phenology and advancing seasons. And if you are really interested, join it and start entering your observations!|
