Saturday, April 10th: Birding by Ear in Des Moines and Owl Prowl in Seward

Red-Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum) is in full bloom everywhere!  This gorgeous native shrub is an important plant for pollinators and is especially loved by our hummingbirds: both our resident Anna's and our spring migrant Rufous (I saw my first rufous hummer last week!).  Good news for all my friends in the Des Moines Birders...I am leading a birding by ear (plus just general bird watching) outing at Saltwater State Park on Saturday the 10th starting at 8:30 am.  That same night I will be leading an Owl Prowl in Seward Park starting at 7:30 pm.  Please join me by sending an email to register.  Happy April to all!
