Speaker: Dan Bieker
Topic: The VSO’s American Kestrel Box Project
A large percentage of the MBC membership would be alumni of Dan Bieker’s PVCC field birding class and most, no doubt, are aware of his key role in the VSO’s American Kestrel Box Project. Along with Patty Reum and some others who have helped from time to time, he has climbed ladders, searched out willing landowners, and, in general, sought to give this most colorful and gentle–assuming one is not a grasshopper–of American falcons a better chance at survival. Dan, however, will provide for the February meeting a fuller picture of just what exactly these dedicated volunteers do and what are the aims of this extremely worthy project. Future Virginians deserve to know this frequenter of open country telephone wires (the kestrel, not Dan).
As tradition dictates, you are invited to our Meet the Speaker pre-meeting dinner at Brick Oven Restaurant, 1966 Rio Hill Center, Charlottesville at 5:30pm.
