My reporting area includes all of Lehigh and Northampton Counties with the
northern edge of the area reaching Beltzville State Park and the southern
edge reaching Peace Valley Park in Bucks County. Updates are typically done
every Friday, more often when necessary.
There will be a field trip to the Whitehall Parkway on September 2nd. Meet
at the Whitehall Parkway in the Chestnut Street parking lot at the barn
(west off Route 145) at 7:30 AM. Trip leader will Adam Smith.
Directions to many of the sites in this report can be found in the area’s
birding guidebook, “Birds of the Lehigh Valley and Vicinity”. A completely
revised, 2nd edition of the book can be ordered at:
