Florida Winter Birding
Roanoke Valley Bird Club members Mary Harshfield, Betty Burke and Linda Cory
will be sharing information on Florida birding hotspots. With non-stop flights now
available by Allegiant Airlines, Florida is a quick 1.5 hours away. What better way
to enjoy warm, inviting weather AND to enjoy some spectacular birds.
Mary, Betty and Linda will talk about their January 2019 birding trip to several locations
around Florida. They will introduce the rest of their travel party, share their
birding experiences and share amazing pictures taken by the group. If you’ve
been considering a winter birding get-away, this is a talk you won’t want to miss.

Join Robin and Allen Austin (929- 5222) at 8:30 AM for a walk around their property.
Wear sturdy shoes for easy to moderate walking. At noon, we will have lunch
with the hummingbirds that come to their numerous feeders - an amazing sight.
Bring a dish to share and ride with a friend if you can as parking is limited.
