Notice of Annual General Meeting
Nature Moncton Members:
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday November 22, 2021, at 7:00PM.
It will be a virtual meeting. To join the meeting simply click on the link below or the link that will be published on the BlogSpot closer to the event itself. A package of AGM documents will be made available to all members two week before the meeting. I think that the meeting should be brief as all of the executive committee from last year are willing to return. It is a wonderful group to work with and I would like you to consider joining any of our committees if you have a couple of hours a month to spend on a worthwhile cause. If you are interested in helping shape the future of our club, please contact Gordon Rattray (chair of the nominating committee) at email@example.com or any member of the executive committee.

**Yvette Richard was getting out of her a car to take a walk on the Caissie Cape wharf on Sunday, wondering if we would get any owl sightings anytime soon. Lo and behold, a Snowy Owl flew right in front of her, on the first half of the long wharf. It eventually landed on close by rocks.
**Suzanne and Yves Poussart drove on Saturday (NOV 20) along the coast between Shediac and la Dune de Bouctouche. LONG-TAILED DUCKS (Harelde kakawi), COMMON GOLDEN EYE (Garrot à oeil d'or), BARROW'S GOLDENEYE (Garrot d'islande), BLACK SCOTERS (Macreuse à bec jaune), SURF SCOTER (Macreuse à front blanc), RED-THROATED LOON (Plongeon catmarin) and a NORTHERN PINTAIL(Canard pilet) were the most interesting observed species.
The wind was at first quite present and the birds were far out most of the time. Yves was able to get some photos during the afternoon as really pleasant to enjoy this outing after these four weeks of circuit-breaker health status in Moncton which ended on Friday.
**Sure is great to welcome the Bohemian Waxwings! We have lots of food for them to stay with us this season. Aldo Dorio photographed approximately 50 enjoying the plentiful Mountain Ash berries at Hay Island on Sunday.
**The Nature Trust of New Brunswick is sponsoring a webinar that may interest many naturalists. All details are attached below and the link to register:
