After Kane County Audubon did a bang-up job of hosting the
Illinois Audubon Society's "Spring Gathering" on May 19 - 21, President
Bob Andrini issued this thank you to KCA members:
A very big THANK YOU to all the
KCA members who helped support our hosting of the annual Spring
Gathering for the IAS. 191 registrations, 138 meals on Friday and
154 meals on Saturday were only possible because of the MANY hands
that worked together.
Although we only birded for a few
hours on Saturday (due lightning - we did bird in the rain), and
about 3 hours on Sunday, we still saw an amazing 139 species of
birds. With the strange warbler migration we have been experiencing,
we still saw 22 species of those amazing birds.
Thanks go out to many: trip
leaders, food handlers, set-up crew, take down crew - and the list
goes ON AND ON AND ON.
THANK YOU ALL - personally and from the KCA Board
Summertime and the readin' is easy.
Our newsletter editor (and veep), John Sprovieri, has compiled and
released the 2017 summer edition.
