October Meeting

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Our meeting this month will be a documentary night! We're going to start a new tradition where once or twice a year we'll watch a bird documentary. We'll be starting right at 7 so we have enough time to finish the film.

Meet at 7:00 pm at the Monte L. Bean Museum. 645 East 1430 North, Provo, UT http://mlbean.byu.edu/

Upcoming Field Trips

Saturday, October 8th, 2016: All day. The Big Sit - Continuing our long-standing tradition, we will be holding a Big Sit where we count birds seen from a 17' circle on the Provo Airport Dike. This year we will be counting at the same location as the last couple of years on the southwestern corner. Please come and join us for as little or as long as you would like. Various people will be helping out this year, but if you show up and no one is there, we will hopefully have the circle scratched out in the dirt, and you can keep a tally of all the species you see from inside the circle and the time you are there and report it to [email protected]

Saturday October 15th, 2016: 7am-noon. We are going to bird the International Center and Lee Kay in SLC. Meet at 7am at the AF park and ride to carpool. We'll look for rare gulls and late season migrants.

We are actively recruiting people to lead local half-day field trips, any time, any place.  If you would like to lead a field trip or if you have any ideas for this year’s field trips, please contact Bryan Shirley at - [email protected]  or Keeli Marvel at - [email protected]
