Ted Meyer Receives Donna McCarty Volunteer Service Award

Ted accepted the responsibility of Treasurer in 2010. A position he has held since, keeping the organization’s books in good order and informing the Board of all financial activities. Ted has also volunteered multiple times when needed to fill a job. For instance, in 2013 no one could be found who was willing be ABAS President. Even though he was the Treasurer and often out of state, Ted stepped up to the plate and took on the additional position, presiding over Board meetings and making decisions critical to the functioning of the chapter for two years when he recruited Rob Ripma for the job. In early 2017 when a new website was being created, once again Ted stepped in learning the ropes of administering a webpage and using his skills to add the content and facilitate updates.

Rainy weather can sometimes make for a great day of birding! The Greenfield Birders had a successful first walk of the spring migration season today at Thornwood Preserve! They netted 32 species including these highlights:
- Identifying all 7 Indiana Woodpeckers at one park!
- Yellow-throated Warbler
- Yellow-rumped Warbler
- Pine Warbler

The Greenfield Birders hold walks every 2nd and 4th Saturday morning (with a few exceptions) through fall. Big thank you to Adam Wilson for the follow up report and photos!

Be sure to check the Amos Butler Audubon Society's website event calendar for a full listing of other local hikes in our area this spring!
