1982 Fall Field Day

Copyright 1982, Nebraska Ornithologists' Union. Used by permission.


Those who came in Friday to the 4-H Camp at Halsey National Forest ran into rain there or on the way in, but Saturday and Sunday, 2 and 3 October, were bright, but a little too windy and a little too chilly to be perfect. Sixty-three registered for the meeting. Of the birds submitted for consideration, the directors selected the Scarlet Tanager at Scotts Bluff as the best and the Cattle Egret in Sioux Co. as second. (NBR 50:65 and 67). It was decided to have a new field card, on stiffer stock and smaller sized than the present card, to reflect the changes in the new A. O. U. Checklist, and to use the new names and order beginning in 1983. There was a slide show on Saturday night, but otherwise the time was spent in birding.
