Pete Fenner - Birding Hotspots in Our Area You Maybe Didn't Know About

So much about birding is about "Place."  Where can you go to find birds, and which time of year is best? Where do you park and is it a safe place to be? EBird is a good resource for these questions, but often only if the place is a "hotspot."

Pete Fenner will present some ideas about other places to go to see birds in the Peoria area where some interesting birds can be seen. His presentation will mostly focus on places in Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford and Marshall counties. There will be time at the end for the audience members to discuss some of their favorite hotspots too, because we can all learn from each other!
