Received from Georgia of Chirimoyo:
1. On Wednesday July 9 from 5:00 - 7:00 PM,
join Tracy and Glen [of Villa La Jacaranda] and me for a hike/climb from the Estribo to the top of the hill to see what birds we might find. If it's raining buckets, each of us will decide if we're fair weather birders or not. For those of you not familiar with the Estribo and need directions, let me know. Bring water and snacks. Even though this is a steep climb up the hill, we'll do it at a reasonable pace. After all, we'll be looking for birds.
2. Thursday July 10 from 3:00 - 6:00 PM
a hummingbird study. Have you been stymied by those little [hummers] that zip by so quickly? Several of you have mentioned having trouble, so I decided to offer an outing to help. My two feeders are teeming with several species of hummingbirds, and we'll study them from the comfort of my living room. Please come to Corazon de Durazno... If you need directions, let me know. There's plenty of parking.
Bring binoculars for both events.
We have several other events in the works so stay tuned for more announcements. Also, please pass the word to others who may be interested in birding events. All ages and all skill levels are welcome.
