We’ve all heard about the decline of many species of birds. But it’s not all doom and gloom. There have been a number of success stories, such as the blahblah of the Peregrive Falcon and the Bald Eagle. Our November program, to be held on Monday, November 19, will highlight some of those successes.
Veteran birder Jay Stenger, known to many of you as the primary instructor in our bird class, compiler of the Cincinnati Christmas Bird Count, and a frequent field trip leader, will be our speaker that evening. Jay will highlight some of the birds which were difficult to find when he began birding, but which are increasingly common now. Some of those increases are due to rebounds in their continent-wide numbers, while others reflect range expansions into our area.
Audubon programs are held on the third Monday of the month (not including January, July, August or December). We meet at 7:00 p.m. for light refreshments, with the program beginning at 7:30. We meet at the Winton Woods visitor center, located at 10245 Winton Road. To reach the visitor center from I-275, take the Winton Road exit, and go south. Just before the lake, turn right into the park. From the Ronald Reagan Highway, take the Winton Road North exit, and turn right into the park just after the lake.
Note that a Park District auto sticker is required – $3.00 daily or $10.00 annual for Hamilton County residents, or $5.00 daily or $14.00 annual for non-residents.
