heading.
Compiler: Dave DeReamus
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 .

There will be a hawkwatching trip to one of the local hawkwatching sites on
October 19th. Meet at the Tilghman Square parking lot, near the Red Robin
restaurant, just west of Route 309 at 7:30 AM. Trip leader will be Mark
Boyd.

The next Audubon program will be held on October 11th at 7:00 PM at the
Dorothy Rider Pool Wildlife Sanctuary (formerly known as the Wildlands
Conservancy) in Emmaus. Cindy Ross will do a program called, “The World is
Our Classroom: How One Family Used Nature & Travel to Shape an Extraordinary
Education.”

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:
