LycoBirds.com has recently released their SPRING 2017 LycoBirds Seasonal Report 



                                                       American Avocets

"Four American Avocets were found near the Williamsport dam on the evening of July 14th by Maddi Dunlap and David Brown. This is the first known Lycoming County record of this large shorebird species. The flock was knocked down by a rainstorm while migrating from their western United States breeding grounds to their wintering grounds along the mid-Atlantic coast. The birds remained until dusk but were gone the next morning."






Have you ever heard of a Dickcissel?  These birds are very unusual for our area but were recently seen and identified here:

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.
