My Fyke Talk: Friday, Sept. 28

_MG_8610 (1)
I am kicking off Fyke's 2018-19 lineup of speakers on Friday, Sept. 28, with a talk and slide show about my Bird Watcher column, now in its 10th year for The Record.

I'll talk about some of my most recent columns and a few all-time favorites, and some of the rare birds and odd ducks along the way.

Do you have a question for the Bird Watcher (preferably humorous)? Email me at

As a bonus, Celery Farm Marsh Warden emeritus Stiles Thomas will unveil his two most recent carvings. You won't believe either of them!  Stiles says that only a fool would miss this.

The talk, at Allendale Borough Hall,  is free and open to the public, and follows a short business meeting that begins at 8 p.m.

With a little luck, free refreshments will be served afterward.
