** A poster for the PETITCODIAC RIVER APPRECIATION DAY on April 4 has been drawn up and designed and is nearly ready to be posted in appropriate areas. This poster has been prepared by the cooperative efforts of David Cannon and Helen Chenell. A great job! Tickets are also available at St. Paul’s United Church office, 404 Cleveland Avenue in Riverview, from 9 to 4, Monday to Friday. The poster cannot be attached to the Nature Moncton Blogspot or the Nature New Brunswick listserv, but it can be viewed full screen at the Nature Moncton website, www.naturemoncton.com under the Petitcodiac River Appreciation Day Poster tab. It is attached to Nature Moncton’s membership email message.


** Brian Stone shares a few photographs he got recently. He got a great photo of the full MOON [Lune], as it appeared at 8:59 PM on Saturday evening, showing all the craters that Galileo first saw and described from his homemade viewer in 1610, with which he could see the craters and named them.

Brian also got some super close-up photos of the antics of a BLACK-CAPPED CHICKADEE [Mésange à tête noire] enjoying some sunflower seed chips from his hand, at Mapleton Park. They are indeed special!


** Audrey Goguen reports that she had one lone CEDAR WAXWING [Jaseur d’Amérique] appear in her yard flowering crab tree on Saturday morning.
