Next we had Janet Hug from the Oakland Audubon Society. She gave us updates on their Nuthatch Challenge to encourage young birders. It was wonderful to have her join us! http://www.oaklandaudubon.org/
After our speakers, we of course had a brew and talked about birds. It's been wonderful to see new and old faces as our group continues to grow. Our next Birds & Brews is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, November 14 at Bailey's Pub in Dearborn. Come join us!

I read her blog often and enjoyed reading about her Birds & Beers group which she describes as "an informal gathering of birders of all abilities–if you’re interested in birds, you’re invited." Birdchick was generous enough to let me copy her idea - so a big hearty thank you to Birdchick!
So here come's the Michigan version. Our inaugural Birds & Brews event will be scheduled in February. Stay tuned!
