Name that Bird

About 30 people turned out at each of the two meeting spots (Patricia Bay Park on the west side of the Peninsula, the band-shell at the east end of Beacon Avenue in Sidney).  There were plenty of birds to be seen at both locations. About 30 folks came later to share tea and cookies at St. John’s United Church, to catch up with FOSH news and to participate in some goofy entertainment.  We enlisted some new supporters.  Thanks, everybody, it was a good afternoon!
