NOU’s May birding event in northwestern Nebraska is fast approaching. Friday evening, May 18, we will gather at Fort Robinson State Park to meet up with old and new friends, share stories and make plans for the weekend. Amber Schiltz and Amanda Siliti with Bird Conservancy of the Rockies will be our evening speakers. They will be talking to us about the bird banding project at Chadron State Park.
On Saturday, we will have birding field trips to area hot spots such as Sowbelly Canyon, Gilbert-Baker Wildlife Management Area, East Ash Creek Canyon, Chadron State Park, and Toadstool Park.
Saturday evening, we will get together to share our sightings, have supper and talk about Sunday field trips. Rick Wright will be our featured speaker and his presentation titled Brown is Beautiful: Discovering the American Sparrows and their Discoverers. It will be a fascinating presentation!
