"50 for 50" sponsors

As part of the celebration of the August Bird Club's 50th Anniversary, we are holding a drawing for a door prize at each of our meetings during the 2016-2017 year. You must be a club member and present at the meeting to be eligible. "50 for 50" refers to the usual value ($50) of the door prize, though in some cases it may worth more than that. We appreciate the donations from area business establishments, and encourage our members to patronize them.

Panama Birding Trip

In January, Ann Cline took a trip to Panama, including visits to two renowned tropical birding hot spots. At Gamboa she tallied 77 species, of which the highlights were Rufescent Tiger Heron, Golden-collared Manakin, Crimson-backed, Flame-rumpled, Blue-Grey, Palm, and Golden-hooded Tanagers, and several species of Caciques. At El Valle a few days later she saw Toucans, Araçaris, Wood-creepers, and Ani's. Here is a sampling of the photos she took:
