About Birding… From the Newell’s:

Once again, Geoffrey Newell will be leading the bird walk at Upland’s Park. Meet at 8:00 a.m. next Sunday, February 17 in the large parking lot out at the end of Cattle Point. The last few months have turned up several species of rare birds in the park: Franklin’s Gull, Yellow-shafted Flicker, Common Redpoll, etc. Please remember that this walk is in place of the walk at the end of the month.

Hope to see you there!
Please also see the e-bird reports from our last two walks at Cattle Point.

Good Birding!!!!.
