General InformationClub meetings are the first Tuesday of every month except July and August at 7:30 p.m. at the Arnprior Curling Club, 15 Galvin St., Arnprior (by the Fairgrounds). Guests welcome: $5 per meeting – Students welcome to attend for Free! Guests are also welcome on field trips and will be asked to make a contribution of $5 to our club. (Students are free.) Please register beforehand and always check this website for updates before heading out on a field trip. NOTE: If you join a field trip, be aware that other participants may take your picture, accidentally or intentionally. So the photo may end up on the mfnc.ca or other websites. It’s a normal part of sharing field trip fun and information. If you don’t want your photo used this way, tell the trip leader or the field trip coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
105th Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count
The annual Pakenham-Arnprior Christmas Bird Count is being held on — you guessed it — Boxing Day! The count is a full-day event with a potluck dinner/compilation afterwards. Participants should have some experience in identifying birds; individuals are assigned an area to cover and paired so no one goes alone.
As reported at our last meeting, Evening Grosbeaks have started to show up after years of absence at local feeders and hopefully their numbers will return to at least double digits on our 2018 count.
If you want to keep track of your feeder birds or participate in the count, please contact Michael Runtz at email@example.com or at 613- 387-2503.
