Birds and Beers, Anyone?
Many other regional birding groups, such as the Twin Cities, Madison and the Green Bay have established more
informal gatherings for birders to meet and share stories. The venue changes from meeting to meeting and they are
somewhat unscheduled. Sometimes birding might be part of the agenda beforehand, other times it’s just a chance to
meet others who share your interest.
For example, when a Great Grey Owl decided to hang out on the grounds of the
Capitol Brewery in Madison, there was a somewhat spontaneous Birds and Beers scheduled. We’d like to try and
create our own “Birds and Beers.” If you have an urge to sit somewhere, like maybe Pearl Street Brewery, meet
other birders and talk bird smack, post the date, time and place on the facebook page. Pass the word to others who
might enjoy this and someone is bound to show up.
