November 2019 Meeting

Tue, November 5, 7:00 pm
Blue Spruce County Park Lodge
Speaker: Dave Brooke

Description

Dave Brooke will be the evening’s presenter. His wife Kathy was always a “backyard bird feeder” and got him interested in watching birds, but he didn't really pay that much attention to them until about five years ago when he attended a bird hike at Harrison Hills Park led by Steve Gosser and Mary Ann Thomas during which he saw his first warbler, an adult male Hooded Warbler. Dave writes, "I was astounded that such a beautiful creature lived in the forest near me." The following week, Kathy and he went to Magee Marsh
and Dave was hooked. Since then he has birded and photographed birds nearly every day. He loves to try to capture behaviors and interactions that tell a story.

Dave’s presentation is entitled, "Bosque del Apache’s Festival of the Cranes." Dave will focus on the large number of Sandhill Cranes that depend upon Bosque as a wintering ground. He will also discuss the refuge and its importance in the Rio Grande Valley. Don't miss this excellent program.
