Pledge to Fledge

This weekend is Pledge to Fledge, an international effort to introduce people to birdwatching. I wish I had heard about this event sooner, to try to set up a coordinated event, but there's next year.

Due to the short notice (like, today), I am just going to make the following offer: anyone who wants to do a little bit of birding can meet me at the entrance to the Chat Trail in Lake Wichita Park at 7:30 Friday morning (August 23) or 7:30 Saturday morning (August 24.) I can only stay out an hour on Friday (I do have to work after all) but can spend 2 - 3 hours on Saturday, if anyone has an interest. I am not available this year on Sunday. Where's the Chat Trail? Take the first entrance to the park off Fairway (next to the football fields) and drive to the end of the parking lot. The chat trail is the gravel (chat) trail that is at the back corner.

You don't have to worry about knowing anything about birds. This is just an introduction. Open to children and adults. So, c'mon out!

Good birding!

Thank you, Penny! I got to add several species to my lifetime list, and also got to add a friend. See you again! Dana

Dana, Enjoyed it! Any excuse to bird, I always say! Glad you got a couple of lifers--it will get harder as you get a bigger list, but the thrill is the same! A report going up in a few minutes. Any time you want to bird, come on down! We also have a monthly bird walk in Lake Arrowhead State Park on the second Saturday of every month. 8 AM until next summer. That would make the next one Sep 14.
