Six club members--Rick Knight, Joe McGuiness, Kathy Noblet, David Kirschke, Jim 
D. Anderson, and Roy Knispel--participated in the club field trip to Western 
Washington County on  Saturday, January 18.  Despite cool breezes, especially 
noticeable when in open areas such as along Keebler Rd., we had good birding
