I've had numerous requests for the 2009 STA5 schedule. I've included the dates through Oct. 2009 for you to use, share, post in newsletters, or copy to birding websites.
Thank you. Volunteers are still needed for the 2nd Annual STA5-Clewiston Christmas Bird Count to be held on Saturday Jan. 3, 2009.
