The February program will give us a jump start on our birding by ear skills so we're ready and eager for the arriving birdsong of returning migrants. Dr. Larry Underwood and colleagues will join us and share some of the secrets. Dr. Underwood is a biologist, author, birder and professor, and is the principal scientific advisor to iKnow Songs, an app for learning and identifying birds song.
Member meetings are held at St Luke Lutheran Church, 7757 Chippenham Pkwy at Custis Road. Join us at 6:30 pm for pre-meeting coffee, cookies and conversations. Programs will start at 7:00 pm.
You are invited to join this active organization in our appreciation of birds. We offer frequent bird watching field trips, monthly members meetings and an array of bird related resources, plus local bird news articles. We welcome everyone who has an interest in our feathered friends, from the casual back yard birders and kids, to life-long birding veterans. All RAS sponsored events are open to both members and non-members and are usually free; visitors are always welcome and encouraged to participate.
