ELIAS April Birding Challenge
With the Coronavirus keeping us close to home, we thought that we might challenge our members to list the birds observed in their yard during the month of April.
This is a simple task that can be accomplished while raking your yard, planting flowers, or just standing/sitting outside listening and watching. For those of you who submit observation to the Cornell eBird website, your lists will serve as a record of your observations. For others, simply find a notebook or a blank piece of paper and begin to list the different birds that you see in, around and over your yard.
At the end of April, we will ask you to submit your lists to our Facebook Page or our email page and from there someone will tally the April listing of birds observed by our members and post it on Facebook and in the next Osprey.
This does not make up for lost walks or monthly meeting, however, it does provide some opportunity for us to remain interconnected and to enjoy the birds in our backyards or wherever you get to bird. So, begin that April list.
Be safe and good birding.
ELIAS Board of Directors
Dear ELIAS Members and Friends:
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in an effort to safeguard the health and safety of our members, field trip leaders and speakers, we have decided to cancel all our events until further notice. This includes our monthly meetings and field trips. We will heed the advice of our health care professionals and return with new dates for these events, when safe to do so.
National Audubon Society advises we follow social distancing guidelines, do not share binoculars or spotting scopes and use hand sanitizer whenever needed.
We will try to stay connected with you via our Facebook page and the website.
Byron Young for the ELIAS Board of Directors
