AVOCET CORRECTION: The delightful picture of the Orchard Oriole from our March/April 2016 newsletter issue was unfortunately mis-credited. That picture came from Will Brooks. We appreciate his allowing us to use that picture, and we apologize for the error.

New CD Set of Bird Songs available: The Environmental Action Committee of West Marin (EAC) has produced a boxed set of 2 CDs which include more than 100 Bay Area bird songs. Each song can be repeated. The songs are arranged by habitat type. The CDs are narrated by EAC's Carolyn Longstreth. You can order the CDs online (link above), or call 415-663-9312 to order your set. All proceeds go to EAC's bird conservation program.
