El Paso Audubon General meeting: 12 steps for bird identification.
Monday, January 18th, at 7:00 pm. Registration is free and open to everyone, but you do need to register ahead of time with this hyperlink to Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYpce-grDMvE9ejvLhCOEwT1cK0L25unSdz
Learn several steps that can be used to help identify birds. El Paso Audubon board member Kevin Floyd will introduce the 12 steps outlined in the Peterson book by Howell and Sullivan. This will be useful for beginning birders, and might provide a new way of thinking about identification for more experienced birders. Bring your bird ID questions!

This is part one of the "Be a birder" talks. In February we will focus on the supplies and resources, like binoculars, field guides, phone apps, and the like. That meeting will be on Monday, Feb 15th, and you can register for that by clicking here.

Please share with anyone who might be interested, and we hope to see you there!

I visited last week and enjoyed my time there. Question: Near the entrance and next to the fence, I saw a large mammal that looked like a prairie dog; however, it was alone and seemed to be searching for an exit. It had brown fur, a rounded head with round ears and ran along on all fours. What was I seeing? After a short while, it disappeared in the shade of a bush and I didn't see it after. . .my husband thought it could be a woodchuck.
