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.
The next Audubon program will be held on November 10th at 7:00 PM at the
Wildlands Conservancy in Emmaus. Brandon Swayser will do a program called
“Habitat Preferences of Hooded Warblers.”
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:
