August Meeting

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Potluck up South Fork - 7:00 pm.

Everyone is invited! Bring your friends and family! This year our potluck will be up Provo Canyon at South Fork Park. This is the park midway up the South Fork road in Provo Canyon. To get there, drive 5.4 miles from the mouth of the canyon to the South Fork turnoff at Vivian Park. Turn right up South Fork and follow the road 1.7 miles to South Fork Park. We will try and grab one of the pavilions. Bring a food item to share. Map: https://goo.gl/maps/LTiVt8XYeFp


Upcoming Field Trips

Saturday, August 6th, 2016: 8am - mid afternoon. Deloy Pack has offered to lead a trip to Pat Jividen's place in Tabiona on Saturday, August 6th. Meet at the North side of the Harmon's parking lot on 800 N. in Orem at 8am. First stop will be the Reid's place in Hannah where the group will spend half an hour or so, and then to the Jividen's place. Black-chinned, Broad-tailed, and Rufous Hummingbirds are a good bet, and Calliope Hummingbirds are possible (Pat and the Reid's have both seen them at their feeders). White-breasted nuthatches as well as other mountain birds are also possible. Plan to carpool and return via Hwy 35 around mid afternoon. Bring a camp stool or chair, and lunch/snacks.

Saturday, August 13th, 2016: 7am - late afternoon. In search of migrating shorebirds. Meet at the American Fork Park and Ride lot on Pioneer Crossing. We will follow shorebird reports north to Antelope Is., Farmington Bay, or Bear River Refuge depending on what's being seen and where. Bring a lunch. Led by Keeli Marvel

Monday, August 15th, 2016:  Nebo Bench.  Led by Suzi holt. Meet at the regular spot at the Payson Walmart at 8:45 am. We will drive up Santaquin canyon to get there. Target bird is the American Three-toed Woodpecker, Purple Martin, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Golden-crowned Kinglet, flycatchers and other migrant species.

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
