February Chapter Meeting Information
Gray Jays: Their Reliance on Nature's Refrigerator
Gray Jays are a social, non-migratory, scatter-hoarding resident of boreal and subalpine forests. They rely
on cold temperatures or Nature's refrigerator during autumn and winter seasons. Erin Greenlee will discuss how
the warming effects of climate change pose a serious threat for their long-term survival in New Mexico.
The meeting will be held at 7:30 PM on Wednesday, February 10, at the Christ Lutheran Church located in the
triangle between Arroyo Chamiso, St. Michaels Drive, and Old Pecos Trail.
This talk is co-sponsored by the Randall Davey Audubon Center.

Birding Information and Links
Test Your Birding Skills
The Catagory Laboratory at Vanderbilt University
is looking for birders of all levels of experience to participate in a project examining how perception and memory for birds
differs between beginners and experts. These experiments are online on the web. They measure your ability to remember and identify
birds and sometimes other animals or objects. Many experiments are fairly short. They can be done on any computer, wherever and
whenever you decide to do them. Go online to register and test
your birding skills.
