IOU Dubuque meeting=Life birds for many
Thank you Dubuque Audubon members for your hospitality and all of your help leading field trips and working with our new VP, Pip Fisher to plan a great fall conference! Thanks to our presenters for great programs on Prothonotary Warblers, Bird Friendly Iowa and eBird. Amar Ayyash's presentation on gull identification was edifying and entertaining and gave us more confidence to ID the gull species during field trips. We tallied 95 species for the weekend and at least seven attendees got life birds during our field trips when a pair of Red Crossbills were highly cooperative! Other life birds for members included Tundra Swans and Cackling Goose. It was fun to see our birding colleagues from across the state and we hope you will join us for our spring meeting, May 18-20th in Sioux City!
