2017 PSO Annual Meeting

Cumberland County

RockJumper Tours

Birders from all over the state are invited September 15 through 17 to Carlisle, Cumberland County for a time of great birding, making and renewing friendships, and an opportunity to increase their knowledge about the birds they find so fascinating! There is something for everyone!

Saturday and Sunday Field Trips will include birding the migrant rich Blue and Kittatinny ridges of the Michaux and Tuscarora State Forests, exploring the grounds of the former State Hospital and Wildwood Lake Park in Harrisburg, venturing to Miller’s Gap and Lamb’s Gap, Little Buffalo State Park, and State Game Lands 169 and 230, along with a mix of history and birds on the battlefields of Gettysburg and the ever popular Audubon Hawk Watch at Wagoner's Gap at the height of Broad-wing Migration.

Speakers will include Ian Gardner on Friday evening, who will help us brush up on our Fall Warbler Identification. Saturday Afternoon Andy Wilson will speak about the Use of Drones in Bird Research and Art McMorris on Peregrine Falcons in PA. Saturday Evening our Banquet Speaker will be Ted Floyd, the Editor of "Birding" the American Birding Association's flagship publication. Ted’s topic will be “Birding in the 21st Century.”

Registration for the gathering runs June 10 through August 25. See the registration link on the previous page.

Please note:

 Field trips will be filled on a first come first serve basis so register early to get your first

 In place of the silent auction we are selling T-shirts with the meeting logo on it as a means of raising additional funds to help cover meeting expenses. They come in two colors and many different sizes. The opportunity to purchase one or more can be found on the registration forms (paper or online).
