** The black oil sunflower seed delivery from New Brunswick farmer Mike Dickinson will arrive today, Wednesday, at 3:00 pm, at 85 Mount Royal Blvd. in Moncton. Dale Gaskin will be present then, and for the next few hours, to dole it out to folks who ordered it, most of whom hopefully can make a quick visit to pick it up at that time. If you cannot make it, call Dale Gaskin at 734-2197 to make other arrangements. Brian Stone has attached a map to show the site. There is also 2 Ducks Unlimited duck boxes and 1 Nature Moncton Swallow nest box there available free of charge on a first come first served basis. If you would like them, make sure to leave name and email address

** A very big thank you to Alain Clavette for sharing his contagious enthusiasm at Tuesday evening’s Nature Moncton meeting. Alain gave us dozens of certain and possible winter appearing birds to put on our bucket list for the months ahead and lots of interesting tidbits of information on each to give us all the more sense of anticipation.

** Lois Budd shares her birthday present of Tuesday when a female PILEATED WOODPECKER [Grand pic] arrived to her yard to partake of a small suet block. Lois comments that she has been seeing it around all summer and it seemed to be getting closer and closer, but on Tuesday it made an official feeder visit.
