December Meeting a Wrap of Year 2017
Twenty-nine AVA members met at the R. J Parks Library in Oscoda on December 12 from 1-3:30. They were there to see birder friends and to learn about using the eBird application. There were other topics of interest too; the two Christmas counts coming up soon, short reports on Giving Tuesday, and the Tawas Point Migration 2018 plans, as well as some Christmas cheer done in song, thanks to Emily Kemnitz!
Phil Odum’s presentation generated great interest and discussion. Many energetically shared with either questions and/or tips for use of eBird! More will be done at future meetings to keep that interest vibrant, according to President Jean Howard. A final treat was viewing a number of Phil’s superb photos of birds and other objects of interest that he encounters on his many miles of ‘chasing’ birds. Thanks to Phil, Arno, Larry, Dawn and all who made it a worthwhile time for all!
