Second Annual

Dead Bird Double Feature!

Like last year we are doing a special program to celebrate The Coveted Dead Bird Contest Awards!

First our Bird Boss will announce the winners of the 2014 contest: "It Isnít The Heat Itís theÖ"

Then we will have a presentation from expert Becky Thompson on a hot topic, constantly in the news these days. There is a group that is moving from rural areas to the city. They have long been responsible for many deaths among their own race. They are now moving into the suburbs, causing property damage, injury and even death to innocent people. Their social networking and organization has been the subject of study for people as varied as Sherlock Holmes and Simon Wood. Who are these determined and sometimes dangerous beings? Bees of course! Come and learn about another segment of the natural world that is used in many stories from The Beekeepers Apprentice by Laurie R. King to Star Trek.

The meeting starts promptly at 10:30 a.m. See you there!
