Our club is a proud supporter of this Sunday’s annual Mass Audubon Birders’ Meeting! Birders from all over the state will converge on UMass-Boston to mingle, listen to talks about birding topics, and buy from birder-oriented vendors. This year’s theme is “Warblers: From Soundscapes to Landscapes.” If you don’t have your tickets yet, you can register right up until the start of the event. It’s always educational, the vendors have great books and birding gear, and the event is the best way to attach faces to the names that you read on our local birding e-mail lists and FaceBook discussion groups. Hope to see you there!
