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.

You can visit the Lehigh Valley Audubon Society Website at
http://www.lvaudubon.org/ .

You can visit my 'Eastern PA Birding' Website for photos and information at
http://users.rcn.com/becard/home.html .

The next Audubon program will be held on February 8th at 7:00 PM at the
Dorothy Rider Pool Wildlife Sanctuary (formerly known as the Wildlands
Conservancy) in Emmaus. Keith Bildstein will do a program on “The Life &
Times of Turkey Vultures.”

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:
