Thanks to some alert readers who emailed me a reminder (can you tell by the entries so far that I'm cleaning out my email box?) that this Thursday, November 29 at 6pm is Birds and Beers at Merlin's Rest!
Anyone interested in birds is welcome to attend--from the hard core to the beginner to everyone in between. If you want to meet some people, talk some birds and have a beverage or two, this it the place for you. Hope you can come! This Saturday is the Minnesota Ornithologists' Union Paper Session (aka annual gathering)--we can talk about that! Speaking of that, I'll be giving a presentation on Techno Birding--how technology is working it's way into the average birder's life. I have to say, I'm really honored to be giving a presentation there, something that I've always wanted to do. Plus it's always fun to catch up with Minnesota birders and to take advantage of the annual book sale--what old book or publication will I find this time?
