We had a good time at our spring weekend down at Pine Mountain. We had walks 
Friday evening, Saturday all day, and Sunday morning. We did not get a lot of 
species since we did pnly two habitats, the forest around the lodge and a 
of the golf course. We did have rain friday night and Saturday morning and 
Sunday was very foggy. We did get a total of 61 species for the weekend. Most 
the warblers were KY breeders with very few of the species that migrate 
The pot luck Friday and the Derby Party on Saturday were great. Thanks for all 
the good food that everyone brought. I have posted a few of my pictures from 
weekend ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/lang-photoshare/ ) for those of you that 
are interested.

Next up on the schedule are the Annual Picnic for our local chapter of the 
National Audubon Society.

Where: Buckley Wildlife Sanctuary
1305 Germany Road
Frankfort KY 40601

When: May 9, 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Description: Please join us for our Annual Picnic Pot Luck! 

5:00 trail walk
6:00 General Meeting & Board Nominations
7:00 Pot Luck Dinner

Burgers will be provided (RSVP to president@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx so we know how 
food to get). Please bring your own beverage and a side dish or desert to share.

Then on Saturday, May 12th we have a walk scheduled for Berea Woods. For those 
of you in and around Lexington we will be meeting at 7:30 at Lakeside Golf 
Course outer parking lot so that we can car pool down, or you can meet us down 
there at the parking lot for Indian Fort Theater. Andy Newman will be leading 
the walk. He has offered to to take us to some other habitats to look for 
additional species, if you are prepared to be out for the day. I will be taking 
him up on his offer. Bring a lunch either way.

Good Birding
