Calendar of Events  for 2015-16


Membership meetings are held September through May on the second Monday of the month at 7:00 PM (unless noted otherwise) at the Science and Discovery Center of Northwest Florida (308 Airport Rd, Panama City, FL).   On Mon,  Sept 12, Neil Lamb will present  "1000 Bird Columbia Mega Tour".  See details below. You do not have to be a member to attend.  After the program we will have a short social hour.  We look forward to seeing you.

.Looking for something to do?   Find us on Meetup for the most current info on field trips, programs and other news.

At the last board meeting, the Board voted  to discontinue mailing printed copies of the newsletter and instead,will now  e-mail the newsletter to you. Other organizations have been doing this for several years. This would save us a lot of money and work, as you can imagine if you have ever been involved in newsletters. The advantages of an electronic version, besides cost savings are: The newsletter can be as long or as short as we want, it can be in color, more photos can be included and we can even embed links to videos.  You can still print it out on your computer.

You will need to provide us with your e-mail address to receive the electronic newsletter. You can send us an e-mail at with your full name and e-mail address. We will not sell or distribute your e-mail address to anyone. However,  we do send out information occasionally about meetings, field trip updates, work days, events and conservation issues that we feel you would be interested in.

If you do not want to provide us with your e-mail address, you can still see the newsletter on our web site: Just look under “Newsletter” and view or print it out.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize if this is inconvenient for some of you. We will have a few hard copies printed up for meetings and events. The next newsletter will be sent by e-mail in late August, 2016

Please attend the September 12th membership meeting for the entertainment of a trip to the South American country of Colombia.  Enjoy photos of birds, people, places, and other wildlife in this premier birding destination. From the Amazon Basin, the three ranges of the Andes, the valleys between, and the Santa Marta region to the north, Colombia offers so much!  This Blue-billed Currasow is one of about 200 of its species on the planet.  About 90% of the world population of these birds live in the ProAves reserve, El Paujil.  See Neil’s photos of the antpittas, tanagers, manikins, and crab-eating fox among all the other things that will make you dream of a trip of your own to Colombia.
