Tales from Birds NZ’s youth camp
Birds BOP member Sonny Davis attended a Birds New Zealand youth camp last month and he’ll be singing its praises at their upcoming meeting.
The bird enthusiast was sponsored by the Birds BOP to attend the field course for a hands-on experience in handling birds and developing skills in bird ecology at the Rakiura/ Stewart Island youth camp. Sonny will talk about his adventures and report on the bird-related activities with plenty of photographs.
The meeting is at the Tauranga Historical Society hall, behind the Brain Watkins House, 233 Cameron Rd on June 13 at 7pm. Gold coin donation and all are welcome.
■ Birds BoP is the local branch of Birds New Zealand, the Ornithological Society of NZ. Birds New Zealand is about enjoying and studying birds. They hold evening meetings, field trips, bird counts and welcome new members and visitors.
