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

There will be a field trip to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland on December 7th.
Meet at the Tilghman Square parking lot, near the Red Robin restaurant, just
west of Route 309 at 8:00 AM. Trip leader will be Lon Levin.

The next Audubon program will be held on November 8th at 7:00 PM at the
Dorothy Rider Pool Wildlife Sanctuary (formerly known as the Wildlands
Conservancy) in Emmaus. Travis Hammil of the Southern Utah Wilderness
Alliance will show an award-winning documentary called, “Wild Utah.”

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:
