Noel J Cutright Bird Club 30th Anniversary: Spring is Sprung

Kate Redmond is a longtime close friend of the club and the perfect writer and photographer to help us celebrate our 30th anniversary. “Spring is Sprung” starts out with a short review of the “science” of winter (distance from the sun, angle of the planet) and moves into the meteorological start of spring, March 1. Warning: The photos are very colorful and may prove a shock to the eye after a drab winter. Special anniversary treats will be served and a surprise or two is likely….

Noel J. Cutright Bird Club: ‘Long Walk for Birds’ and the Great Wisconsin Birdathon

Bill Mueller walked 246 miles across Wisconsin last spring, with two big goals: (1) to raise funds via pledges to the Bird Protection Fund, and (2) to raise awareness about bird conservation. Bill accomplished both of those tasks. He will share adventures from his “Long Walk for Birds,” look at the 158 species he recorded and enlist your help for the 2014 Great Wisconsin Birdathon. Bill is director of the Western Great Lakes Bird & Bat Observatory, founded by Noel Cutright.
