The Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club meets on the third Monday of each month, at 6:30 p.m. at the South Charleston Public Library . 


May Picnic Meeting

The Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club will have our annual covered dish picnic on Monday,  Mar 15, 2017, at 6:00pm at Coonskin park.

This is a potluck dinner, so bring a covered dish of your choice - main dish, dessert, or salad.  Water and ice will be provided as will plastic plates, cups, dishes, table cloths, eating utensils.

We are aiming for shelter #19, where we have met the last few years.  If for some reason #19 is not available when we get there, we will use either #18 or #20, which are in the same general area.  At the Gorman area (on the right), turn left - pass through the gate and go up the hill - go all the way up the hill until you see several picnic shelters.  Turn right into the parking lot for shelter # 19.

Anyone interested in birds is welcome. Hope to see you all there.

Russ will again lead spring outings at Spring Hill Cemetery on four Sunday mornings at 8:00 am: April  23 and 30 and May 7 and 14, 2016. 


The Handlan Chapter of the Brooks Bird Club will conduct our annual Migratory Bird Count Week starting May 6.  Details to follow from Jim Waggy. 


In January, Lauren Merrill discussed PHENOLOGY at the monthly meeting of the bird club (Handlan Chapter).  I thought all would be interested in the attached website which shows several interesting display regarding SPRING-- we are 20+ days early relative to 2012.  The National Phenology Network is a great place to browse about phenology and advancing seasons.  And if you are really interested, join it and start entering your observations!
