PRAS just completed our November Self Guided Birding Activity at Ollie’s Pond in Port Charlotte. A nice walk around the pond revealed some nice birding views for us.
Here are the stats for the three birding activities thus far. For those of you that joined in, glad you did, and we’re always open for more to attend.

Since the Christmas bird count will occur in December, we’ll wait until January for our next birding activity. Several locations are being considered and we request some input from you concerning these. Although you are not committed to any selection you make, we ask for your opinion as to which of these you would consider attending. Select as many as you might consider. Also, please add any others that we might consider.
