Below is the May newsletter from bird club
president Doren Burrell. I'd just like to add two things. One,
in Doren's otherwise excellent directions to our meeting

Park, we invite
everyone to show up early at 6:00 P.M.
For those who have not been to our potluck dinner in the past,
we gather in
the shelters at the far end of the loop in the upper picnic
area. To get
there: drive through the main entrance of the Park and when the
look for a road on the left marked by a set of stone
pillars. Follow this
road up the hill and keep going until you are directed to
proceed on a one-way
loop. Look for a large group of cars in a parking area to the
