Society Meeting – January 30

President Colleen Green opened the meeting by welcoming everybody and speaking briefly about society business and plans for events later in the year.

Colleen introduced January’s featured speaker – Kurt Crist – who gave an interesting ‘illustrated’ talk about bird seed and bird feeders with plenty of seed and feeder examples on view. His talk sparked some interesting questions and observations from the members.

The most unusual item Kurt presented was a concrete feeder from Germany – the yellow feeder at the end of the table in the picture below. The concrete feeder was the raffle prize for the meeting.

The Mini-show, organized by Gwen Reilly, was a good fit with the featured speaker’s presentation – ‘Any flower presentation featuring a winter bird’.

Mini-show entries were judged by the members at large. 1st place went to Mary Jenkins, 2nd place to Kim Katanik-Kuris, and 3rd place to Gwen Reilly.
