After a lapse of nearly 18 months, the Augusta Bird Club is resuming monthly in-person meetings once again, but members are urged to take precautions, such as wearing masks while inside, getting vaccinated, and following social distancing guidelines. These guidelines also apply during field trips.
After a slight postponement for reasons beyond our control, our annual fall bird seed sale is officially open for business! The order deadline is Friday, October 29, and the pickup date is Saturday, November 6, at the Augusta County Government Center in Verona, as usual.
Penny Warren led a field trip to Bell's Lane on Sept. 23, and the six members who particiatated got to see a nice mixture of warblers and other migratory birds. Fall is quickly passing by!
For the time being, recordings of the Augusta Bird Club's recent online meetings are available to the general public via Zoom; see the link information below. We hope to resume in-person regular monthly meetings in the fall, but that depends on how well the covid-19 pandemic has been contained.
