My reporting area includes all of Lehigh and Northampton Counties with the
northern edge of the area reaching Beltzville State Park and the southern
edge reaching Peace Valley Park in Bucks County.  Updates are typically done
every Friday, more often when necessary.

There will be a field trip to local lakes for winter waterfowl on January
14th.  Meet at the east parking lot of Cedar Creek Parkway, near the Cedar
Beach Pool in Allentown at 8:00 AM.  Trip leader will be Scott Burnet.

Directions to many of the sites in this report can be found in the area’s
birding guidebook, “Birds of the Lehigh Valley and Vicinity”.  A completely
revised, 2nd edition of the book can be ordered at:
