Apr 29, “Birdie Day”—Sharp-tailed Grouse Lek & Breakfast

We have been graciously invited by our great rancher friends, the Selmans, to visit their property in southern Cache Valley and observe Sharp-tailed Grouse dancing on their mating grounds. Following the grouse viewing, the Selmans will feed us a wonderful ranchers’ breakfast. In addition to viewing the birds, it is an opportunity to see how truly responsible stewards of the land like the Selmans carry out their ranching operations in a way that makes the land more productive and beautiful for both man and wildlife. This trip is suitable for both novice and experienced birders. Meet at 5:00 AM at the McDonald’s parking lot in Hyrum. Carpooling will be available and mandatory from there. We plan to be back about 1:00 PM.

Joe Wheaton will focus on a local example and play with the classic stream ‘health’ analogy by expanding it using ‘healthy lifestyle’ analogies and focusing on what healthy diets and exercise consist of for streams, and how current restoration practice is too obsessed with medical treatments like surgery.

Renowned Service ornithologist Chandler Robbins died March 20. He was 98. Born July 17, 1918, in Boston, Robbins devoted his life to birds, their study and protection.

He graduated from Harvard with a degree in physics and began teaching math and science in Vermont. Robbins then joined the Service in 1945 as a junior biologist at Patuxent Research Refuge, where he engaged in early research on the effects of DDT and had his papers edited by his colleague Rachel Carson. — more from US FWS …
