November 20 Meeting and Annual Get-Together. Again this year in lieu of a banquet, we will be having a wine and cheese get-together at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center at 6:30 PM, an hour before our regular meeting, which will be a collaborative meeting with the Pine Creek Headwaters Protection Group and feature a presentation by PEDF attorney John Childe, who will discuss the Pennsylvania Environmental Defense Foundation's lawsuit against the Commonwealth. For more information about this, please look at the attached flyer. And, of course, please consider joining us for a friendly and informative evening on Wednesday, November 20. Everyone is welcome.
Winter Finch Forecast. According to the experts, you probably will not see huge numbers of pine siskins or common redpolls hitting your bird feeders again this winter. Seed crops of conifers, birches, alders and mountain ashes in Ontario and the northeast are very good, and significant southward irruptions of redpolls, crossbills, and evening grosbeaks are not expected. You can read Ron Pittaway's Winter Finch Forecast here.
