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 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.

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:
