November 2008


The November meeting of the Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club will be this Monday, Nov. 17th, at 6:30 p.m. at the South Charleston Public Library.  There will be an Executive Committee meeting at 6:00.  Doren Burrell will present a program on Winter Birds.  He will talk about the winter birds we encounter in the Kanawha Valley, and he'll discuss the strategies and physical adaptations used by birds in our area and other areas to cope with the demands of winter.
Our Christmas dinner will again be held at the Boulevard Shoney's (the one in Charleston where the Kanawha Boulevard crosses the Elk River).  We'll meet in a private room at the restaurant at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, December 15th.  The buffet is available at a modest cost, or you can order from the menu.
Our annual Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday, January 3rd.  Don and Marilyn Morton have once again invited us to gather at their home for dinner that evening, so that we can add up the totals from the different counting groups and swap stories about what we found during the day.  We'll talk more about these events at the November and December meetings.  If you have questions, or want to be part of one of the counting groups, call Marilyn Morton at 727-5077.
