"The Last Wild Places of Kansas"

Author George Frazier will talk about his new bookThe Last Wild Places of Kansas (University Press of Kansas) at the next JAS Meeting, which will be held Nov. 28, 2016, at 7:30 p.m. in the Trinity Lutheran Fellowship Hall, 1245 New Hampshire. Chronicling three years spent roaming the Sunflower State by car, canoe, and on foot, the book takes readers to the remaining "wild places" of Kansas, places where nature collides with folklore. - See more at: http://www.jayhawkaudubon.org/node/226#sthash.7oFyLzaj.dpuf

Field Trip to Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge

JAS is once again planning to go to Squaw Creek with the University Women’s Club Birding Group led by awesome birder Jill Baringer.

Squaw Creek is a fall/winter haven for tens of thousands of Snow Geese, Greater White-fronted Geese and other birds. Some are migrants while some winter at the refuge. Much depends on the extent of open water. Swans, gulls, eagles, hawks, and birds of all sorts are likely on this trip, often in astonishing numbers. One of the quirky things you might see are Bald Eagles perched on low muskrat mounds out in the water, seemingly not much of a vantage point, but apparently good for picking out a duck to target.
