Hour on the Tower (040509)
April 10, 2009
The weekly "Hour on the Tower" has begun anew. The idea is to see how many birds you can see as a group in an hour at the Celery Farm from the Pirie Platform. The informal collects at Pirie every Sunday morning at 8, weather-permitting.
The tradition began a decade or so ago when Marsh Warden Stiles Thomas and crack birder Gordon Schultze met on Sunday mornings at the Warden's Watch to see how many bird species they could see in an hour. These days, photographers have taken over the Warden Watch on weekend morning, and Pirie is the place to be (and to see).
If you have not partcipated, it's a good way to improve your birding skills and catch up on CF news.
