Banquet and Program

We are pleased to announce that the speaker for the Saturday banquet will be Dr. David Pitts. Dr. Pitts is a 53-year member of TOS, retired Professor of Ornithology from UT Martin, published author and researcher. His program will be “Documenting the Nesting Season Activities of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds: Constantly Challenging and Frequently Frustrating but Richly Rewarding”. We look forward to hosting Dr. Pitts and his lovely wife, Marion, for the weekend.

Field Trips

We are investigating some new and interesting birding areas so stay tuned for announcements when field trips have been finalized.  All field trips will leave from the Baymont on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
