** Lois Budd reports that she had a very lively turnout to her bird feeder yard near Salisbury on the Wednesday storm day with 100+ EVENING GROSBEAKS [Gros-bec errant], 30 AMERICAN GOLDFINCHES [Chardonneret jaune], both WHITE-BREASTED NUTHATCHES [Sittelle à poitrine blanche] and RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES [Sittelle à poitrine rousse], AMERICAN TREE SPARROWS [Bruant hudsonien], one WHITE-THROATED SPARROW [Bruant à gorge blanche], plus other expected regulars. Lois comments that it was a wonderful but noisy feeder storm day!

** The Nature Moncton Annual Birdfeeder Tour is a mere few weeks away. This event has turned into an excellent day of comradeship and seeing ideas for our feeder yards, birds, and other culinary treats to boot. The write up for it is attached below. Unfortunately this is not on the website as yet due to the website challenges that are being worked on and there are lots more planned activities to be publicised on the website soon.

Nature Moncton’s annual bird feeder tour will take place on Saturday January 26th.  Participants are asked to meet at 8:30 AM at the northeast corner of the coliseum parking lot.  The first stop will be the Renton’s in Stilesville to see the many birds in their well-stocked feeder yard while socializing over a delicious pot-luck breakfast.  Participants are asked to bring food contributions.   After leaving the Renton’s, the group will travel to Mapleton Park for a quick stop to see the ducks, then on to a few other feeders to finally end up at Nelson and Pat Poirier’s in the afternoon.  Come and enjoy a day with fellow birding enthusiasts along with the excitement of seeing what turns up at the visited feeders.  All are welcome, Nature Moncton member or not.
