April 26 Meeting & Program

Join Middlefork Audubon on Thursday, April 26th @ 7:00 PM, at the Danville Public Library to hear Todd Jones, U of I graduate student and PhD candidate, brings us updates on his research of nesting birds.

He has a wealth of information about many of the local nesting birds in that area, including findings about what bluebird fledglings do when they leave the nest.

Come for lively discussion and refreshments.  In honor of John James Audubon's birthday, cake is being served!
