May Meeting

Date: May 21, 2024

Time: 6:45 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Location: Powder Valley Nature Center

Topic: Spring and Summer Birds

Presenter: Bill Rowe

Once again, we welcome Bill Rowe as our presenter for the May meeting. Bill’s program will cover some of the trickier bird identification issues that we face during the spring and summer. Although, one would think that this wouldn’t be much of an issue with most birds in their breeding plumage, that is not always the case. Bill will cover a variety of birds, including some hawks, sparrows, shorebirds, warblers, and more.

Bill was interested in birds and natural history at an early age. He got his first pair of binoculars from Sears in 1957! Although his career was as an educator and school administrator, bird watching was always his passion. He taught adult birding classes at the Missouri Botanical Garden for 31 years, has led roughly 35 bird tours throughout much of North America, and has served on the Missouri Bird Records Committee since 1995. Bill was presented with the Robert Terry Lifetime Achievement Award from St. Louis Audubon Society in 2009. He has been a member of the St. Louis Audubon Society Board for six years, and was the board president from May 2022 to April 2024.
