It is once again time for everyone to practice a tale about the wild experiences everyone has about our fun pastime birding.
Our annual year’s end program of TALL TALES during the December 16 meeting will end our club’s meetings for 2013. So, be prepared to share your wild birding experience from the Christmas Count or one of your field trips or your backyard feeder, or your trip to Timbuktu. Make it exciting for everyone to help relive your memory. Bring friends and let them share in the excitement and the holiday refreshments.
Please join us on Monday, December 16 for an enjoyable evening of birders! Our meetings are held September through June on the third Monday of each month. They begin at 7:00 p.m. at the Will Rogers Garden Center, I-44 and NW 36th Street. Visitors are always welcome.

Adopt-A-Park at Prairie Dog Point
The members of the Oklahoma City Audubon Society have adopted Prairie Dog Point at Oklahoma City’s Lake Hefner by participating in Oklahoma City Beautiful’s Adopt-A-Park program. Our commitment to the program is for assistance in litter management. The Parks department has responded to our request to have additional trash cans placed around the area to help keep the area clean.
Prairie Dog Point is located at the southwest corner of Lake Hefner. It attracts diverse species of birds throughout the seasons and is especially popular with birders during the spring and fall shorebird migrations. In addition to contributing to the beautification of our community, our participation in the program allows us to promote the area as a location of interest to birders, perhaps helping to avoid further habitat loss. Everyone is invited to participate in our Adopt-A-Park project by picking up litter during birding trips to the Point.
