Springfield Audubon Society Hosts Annual Meeting
The Springfield Audubon Society held its annual meeting this weekend in Springfield.
Members Bob and Cathy Andrini presented a pictorial presentation about the birds that have been in northern Illinois during this time of year. Both permanent residents and visitors were found in backyards, fields, and streams.
"I'm a retired biology teacher, and so biology--the study of birds, study of nature--has always been a part of our lives," * said. "And to get people interested in nature is pretty important."
People at the meeting got a lesson on the survival methods birds have developed to withstand extreme weather. The meeting lasted about 45 minutes, and was followed by a potluck dinner.
