Calling all nature enthusiasts and bird lovers! Thursday, October 31, at 7:00 PM at the Viking Club, before the Angola Field Group presentation, you are invited to join the Angolan Association for Birds and Nature. They are looking for new members. They especially want more Angolans to participate!

Angola is one of the most biologically diverse countries of Africa. This is reflected in the high number of bird species (more than 940) and its diverse natural environments.

To join the group, please bring with you a photo copy of your national identity document (if you are Angolan) or passport and visa (if you are not Angolan). Membership is free of charge.

Birding Field Trip: Chris Hines is organizing a birding camping trip for the long weekend (November 9th to 11th) to the Cambondo Forest in Kwanza Norte. It is now African Pitta bird breeding season. Open to all members of the Birds and Nature Association, no charge. For more details and to sign up, please see Chris on Thursday.
