November 19 – Richmond Audubon Pot Luck
It’s that time of year again: The Richmond Audubon November pot luck dinner and story-sharing! For this special meal, we’ll provide turkey and ham and you can bring a dish to share. Be creative, bring your favorite family Thanksgiving dish, or try out something new! Please label your dishes and let us know what’s in the dish you bring. We each help provide the program by picking out 3 – 5 pictures and sending them to email@example.com. We can each share the story to go along with our pictures. No pictures, but you have a story to share? Let us know and we’ll add your name to the agenda, too. The number of folks who have shared has grown each year; please “show and tell” your story and pictures. We meet at St. Luke Lutheran Church, 7757 Chippenham Pkwy, Richmond. Please come and join us at 6:00 pm for good food, great company and even better pictures and stories.

Prothonotary Warbler Program Data Available
At the February 2013 membership meeting, members of Richmond Audubon built 28 replacement Prothonotary Warbler nest boxes for the long term conservation project currently run by Bob Reilly and members of the VCU biology department, with help from Richmond Audubon volunteers. We put our names or initials on the boxes we built, and Bob has provided the following report on the outcomes for those boxes over the 2013 and 2014 breeding seasons. Bob reports that six additional boxes will need their location verified at the start of the 2015 season before results are available on them.
