I wish I could see this talk, and also hear more about the work the sargents have done showing the little Saw-whet owlslive year-round in Alabama. There was a good newspaper article about it, and we are lucky to have dedicated bird people here.

I have noticed that when I can attend events put on by bird groups like Audubon, or other nature-related events, the knowledgeable folks who have the most to teach are generally older folks. I know some of the most active Audubon members in B'ham are in their 80's and even 90's. Really, I don't see much evidence that younger folks are doing much to benefit from the years of accumulated knowledge these folks have. I don't see younger people showing up.

I might not care to comment on this, except you can't help notice in the newspaper today that although we have more empty retail space and big
empty stores where i live in Hoover, they are set to finish yet more new development with close to a million more square feet of retail and parking lots, when you add it all up. So I wonder how many more Best Buys and Targets we need, and I hope to see more birds before the cell phone towers and parking lots completely win out.

The HB lecture was attended by over 200 HB enthusiasts!
Bob and Martha Sargent shared their knowledge with a lot of humor. If you have the opportunity to attend one of their lectures, do make the time to attend.
