October Member Meeting:  Brown-headed Nuthatches in Suburban Environments: The Role of Nest Site Competition


Featuring Dr. Mark Stanback, Professor of Biology at Davidson College


Sunday, October 25th at 3:30 PM at Manuel’s Tavern


Over the last half-century, Brown-headed Nuthatches have been on a slow decline. While much of this decline is undoubtedly driven by habitat alteration, Dr. Stanback contends that competition with Eastern Bluebirds has been a contributing factor. He will report the results of experiments of he and his students have conducted in recent years which show that Brown-headed Nuthatches aren't as sensitive to habitat quality as is often assumed and that bluebirds effectively outcompete them for nest sites.


Sparrow Workshop on the Georgia Coast

November 13-15, 2015


It’s time to sharpen those sparrow ID skills! AAS is pleased to offer our popular Sparrow Workshop again this year. This two-part workshop will be held on the Georgia Coast so we can see some coastal sparrow species such as the Seaside Sparrow, Nelson’s Sharp-tailed Sparrow, and others. Tim Keyes, wildlife biologist for DNR, will give his incredible Sparrow presentation on Friday, November 13th at 7:00 PM in Brunswick at the DNR office building. He will then lead a day of birding on the Georgia Coast on Saturday, November 14th. There will also be a Sunday morning field trip led by Gene Keferl, a coastal birding expert.
