LRCFS Beginning Bird Identification Program on May 22
May 11, 2004 -- On this driving tour through Talladega National Forest,
you will stop at birding "hot spots" in the forest and learn to identify birds by their
songs, calls, and by sight. Don't miss this chance to view the unique birds of the
Shoal Creek Ranger District including the endangered Red-cockaded Woodpecker and
possibly the Red-crossbill.
The program is scheduled to begin at 6:00 a.m. on May 22,
at the Talladega National Forest. Spotting scopes and binoculars will be provided.
This program will train you to be an American Birding Association volunteer and
assist the US Forest Service in bird research.
Pre-registration is required by
May 19, 2004. There is a prepaid admission charge of $5.00. For more information
contact Renee Morrison, LRCFS, at firstname.lastname@example.org
or at Ext. 5697.
