Winona Bird Club update (12/09/2012)
From: Richie Swanson

Hiawatha Valley Audubon Society is now on Facebook (as Winona Bird Club) and can be found at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Winona-Bird-Club/374787112614417. You can log on and share sightings and your love of nature with others. You can submit photos, and as the site develops, you can learn about rare and interesting birds in Winona and the club’s activities. You can join the club and our 50-year-old discussion of Winona-area nature.

Our Christmas Count is Saturday, December 15. Call Walt Carroll, 452-8904, if interested.

Also, I just learned my new myth about the Mississippi River will be available in March in the anthology Front Porch Edition published by The American Athenaeum, http://swordandsagapress.com/American-Athenaeum.php.

I made River Sun Warblers from birdsong, the colors of bird plumages and the beauty and natural history of the Mississippi River. Contemporary field guides call river sun warblers “prothonotary warblers.” But my story takes place when neither people nor field guides existed yet, when wildlife first rose from Earth’s fiery core and emerged on the primal river.

Click on Photo Galleries at www.RichieSwanson.com, then on River Sun Gallery, and you will view beautiful photos of river sun warblers, thanks to club photographers Allen Blake Sheldon, Andy Nyhus, Kay Shaw, Bill Drazkowski, and Howard Munson. River Bird Blog, a seasons of birds at Aghaming Park and Preserve, remains on my webpage, with additional photos by club members Barbi Bell and Kathy Carlisle.
