Once again the Duluth trip is on! Be sure to bring your sunscreen and bug spray, although you probably will not need them, as we search for owls, woodpeckers, gulls, grouse, chickadees, waxwings and the other species that retreat from their boreal territories for the winter. This trip usually fills fast, so don’t wait long if you are interested in observing Snowy, Northern Hawk, and Great Gray Owls, Bohemian Waxwings, Boreal Chickadees, Black-backed and Three-toed Woodpecker, Sharp-tailed, Spruce and Ruffed Grouse. Along Lake Superior we can possibly find Thayer’s, Iceland, & Glaucous Gulls, Common & Barrow’s Goldeneye, various duck species and who knows what other irruptive species might be present. This a great trip taken by over 75 TOS members since we re-introduced it several years ago. Our local guide is Kim Risen and he is amazing in the field. Dress warm as it will likely be cold, however, we spend much of our day in the warmth of our vans driving the country roads in search of birds. Cost of this trip: $1325 for TOS members, $1350 for non-members (includes a year membership) and $275 for a single supplement. A $300 deposit holds your place and the balance is due December 1, 2014. To secure your spot please contact Jim Hailey at the email below. You will then need to send a check with your deposit made out to Jim Hailey at the below address. Cost includes lodging and transportation expenses in the Duluth area but not airfare to/from there.

The Texas Ornithological Society and the Texas Birding Community at large has suffered a great loss with the passing of Steve Gross. Steve Gross was a dedicated educator both as a professional and in the birding world. He was a mentor to many of all ages in Texas Birding. Many will be familiar with Steve's work with the Rockport young birder's big day Bird-a-thon to raise money for our sanctuaries.  Less well known was Steve was the first to volunteer to assist with summer workshops to aid teachers in introducing more young people to birds.
