Augusta-Aiken Audubon Bi-Monthly Meeting Minutes

September 14, 2017

The program for the meeting was "Wild Pigs - America's Growing Invasive Crisis" by Dr. Jack Mayer

There was no old business.

New business:

The required S form for fundraising has been submitted. There has been no response yet. As soon as we receive approval the letter campaign will begin.

The Walkers are out of time so there is no conservation this month.

Friday's field trip has been changed to Aiken Gopher Tortoise HP instead of Yuchi WMA because of changes to access costs by GADNR.

Migration count will be October 7.

Sightings:

Boyd Pond - Baltimore Oriole (Matt)

Langley Pond - Magnolia Warbler (Matt)

Tues at Clark's Hill - Laughing Gull, Parasitic Jaeger, Sooty Terns and Black Terns (post Irma birds)

SRS - L Lake - Brown Pelican (Mark Vukovich)

Brandon has been seeing Quail

Lots of hummingbirds are coming through A White-tailed Tropicbird was found in Georgia after Hurricane Irma and was released.

Talking about various good birds seen by various people out of state.
