ANNUAL BIRDSEED FUNDRAISER The chapter will again be partnering with Snyder’s Nursery at the Feed Mill in Montoursville to offer a selection of quality birdseed for the fall and winter to our members and friends. Thank goodness the mysterious songbird mortality event from this summer has sub sided and the PA Game Commission has lifted it’s recommendation that we take our feeders down. Quite a relief there, on multiple counts! You’ll note on the attached Birdseed Sale order form that the prices have gone up this season, some of them pretty substantially. We understand that this is partly due to Covid-related issues with processing and shipping, but also that the severe and prolonged drought in the western U.S. where sunflower and some of the other seeds are grown is depressing crop yields and driving up the price to us. So, buy some seed and support Lycoming Audubon if you can, and enjoy feeding our feathered friends as the cold season approaches!

Wildlife in Need (WIN) Emergency Response of Pennsylvania
Wildlife in Need (WIN) is a statewide network of volunteers who help in the rescue of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife and assist in getting them to licensed rehabilitation centers in Pennsylvania.  The public can obtain information on WIN and rehabilitation centers by calling 814-414-4224.  If the animal is already contained, you will be provided with information on how to minimize stress, who to contact and where to transport the animal for care. If the animal is not yet contained, or it is at a place of business WIN can provide capture/transport services.  

WIN is in need of more volunteers so if you have any interest in doing this important work please contact Sue DeArment at sdearment@windstream.net

Lycoming Audubon Society's Google Listserv

Lycoming Audubon Society has a new mechanism to quickly notify individuals of bird sightings or impromptu birding trips via e-mail. This involves joining "Lycoming Audubon Society's Google Listserv".  If you are interested in receiving these notices please send us an e-mail and we will add you to the distribution list.

Lycoming Audubon’s Board of Directors has a “wish list” of projects that we agree are very worthwhile.  Realistically, the Board can not accomplish these projects without a “champion” to lead the charge.   If one of these projects is near and dear to your heart, please consider “adopting" it with guidance, assistance and support from your LAS Board.  Contact Joan at (570) 651-0131 to discuss further.

1. HAWK WATCH on North White Deer Ridge (formal data collection for Golden Eagle migration at this location would be especially valuable).
 

2. Conservation Education liaison with Rider Park, the Waterdale Environmental Center and others. Do you want to help teach youngsters about the magical world of birds? Sign up to help our group of aspiring educators.

3. A cam site connected to our webpage (Peregrine or Eagle nest would be neat).

4. Feeding station/birding program at a few local nursing homes.

5. LAS Kestrel Box trail.
