SATURDAY SURPRISE

Bill presenting me with a certificate of appreciation.
This past Saturday, Rob and I attended the 27th annual Ontario Eastern Bluebird Society  general meeting. We've been members for four years and really enjoy this yearly meeting. After our first meeting I volunteered myself to manage their Facebook page, and I handle their Twitter account as well.

The meetings are always educational and fun filled. I look forward to it every year and this year I received a pleasant surprise. Bill Read, the Founder and President, presented me with a certificate of appreciation during the meeting. I was stunned, there are many other members who do so much more, managing nest trails, etc, but the gesture was much appreciated.

I didn't take as many photos as I normally do because I was too busy talking and getting caught up with people I hadn't seen in a year!

All members received sew on patches of the logo this year with the Spring Newsletter.

Tom gave a great video presentation on "his" Prothonotary Warblers.

I wanna win these hand made lawn ornaments!!!
I did! I did! And Delores won one too!
Rob snuck off and saw an owl on his lunch break while I was at the board meeting.
It was another informative and enjoyable day. There was a great video presentation in the morning on Prothonotary Warblers and Eastern Bluebirds. The afternoon talk was presented by Audrey Heagy from Bird Studies Canada on Eastern Whip-poor-wills in Ontario. Looking forward to next year!
