Okay, so…. we have a lot going on! And a very talented Board!
LMN-NE Board member and membership chair Roselie Overby has been birding since she did a science project about birds in 7th grade. She has worked on Summer and Winter Bird Counts in northeast Louisiana for LSU and participates in the D’Arbonne Christmas Bird Count every year. Well, she missed once for a wedding!
She also participates in breeding surveys and feeder watches, gives talks to garden clubs and can teach you to identify birds by ear. So, when can you go birding with Roselie? Coming right up!
Roselie will lead “The Great Backyard Bird Count Hike” this coming Saturday, February 17. Adult birders of all abilities are invited to meet in front of the Black Bayou Lake Visitor Center at 10 a.m. Boots are recommend because, why stay on the board walk when the birds are over there?! Bring binoculars if you have them, or borrow from Black Bayou.
Now, let me point out that that is the same day I am speaking at the Union Museum of History and Art in Farmerville. That means I won’t be able to go birding. You get to choose!
In addition, Roselies will lead a “Spring Bird Hike” April 14, 2018, at 9:30 am at Poverty Point World Heritage Site. Anyone interested in learning about birds is invited, and, again, bring binoculars if you have them or borrow some from Poverty Point. After the hike, you can explore the wonders of the mounds at Poverty Point WHS.
Thanks, Roselie, for offering these great opportunities to get outdoors and learn!
