7:00 Program: "Birders: The Central Park Effect" - a documentary

Come and enjoy a movie night with the HRBC! Thanks to a suggestion by member Gwen Harris, we'll watch the documentary, "Birders: The Central Park Effect" This lovely film follows a group of New York birders as they trek across Central Park looking for the nearly 200 species found in this park. The documentary is more than just a cinematic view of a few birding enthusiasts, it also highlights the importance of conservation, changing landscapes, and the need for green places.

Annual HRBC Picnic at Newport News Park

7:00 AM - Morning Walk in the Park with Andy Hawkins

12:00 PM - Picnic at Shelter #3

This year, the HRBC’s annual picnic will be held Saturday, June 3rd. at noon, in picnic shelter #3 in Newport News Park. Shelter #3 is located near the parking lot for Sunday bird walks, close to the water. It is recommended that you bring chairs for additional seating.

Our morning bird walk will be led by Andy Hawkins and will begin at 7:00 am to allow for birding before the heat of the day. You are welcome to join the group whenever you arrive, so come early and work up an appetite. The picnic will begin around noon and the club will provide everything for the burgers and hotdogs. A sign-up sheet will be out at the May meeting so we can get a head count for the number of burgers and hotdogs needed. Please bring a dish to share (appetizer, side dish or desert) and join all the fun! Please call or e-mail if you are planning on joining us and are unable to attend the May meeting. Following the picnic, the new club officers will be announced. Please come out to celebrate the end of another great year and see everyone one last time before the summer break.

The picnic planning committee will meet Tuesday, May 23 at 1:00 pm at Jane Frigio’s house (114 Deep Water Cove, Newport News). If you are willing to help with planning, set up or clean up please call Wendy Maxey(483-3003 or emaxey@verizon.net) or Jane Frigio(873-0721 or birderjane@gmail.com)
