When the pandemic hit us last Spring, my world became very small. Like so many others, my environment suddenly became my house. No longer would I hop into my car each morning to commute for 20 minutes along the 95 listening to my latest curated playlist. Work would be the same, but without the day-to-day walks through my large building with a coffee in hand to commiserate with friends and colleagues, or sometimes enjoy a long lunch with my team. A recently purchased Rick Steve’s guidebook to Italy would be tucked away in a drawer—only read halfway through.

Tis the season! Red Rock Audubon member Jim Nelson and his wife Andrea recently took a drive up to Pahranagat. Like many of our members, they make an annual visit to see the bald eagles that gather there this time of year. Please enjoy Jim's photographs and short write up of their experience.

A couple months ago, I, Cathy Kozmary vice-president of Red Rock Audubon, arrived early at the HBVP for a morning of birding with a friend. So I went on in and started around Pond 1 binoculars and camera ready for action. I said hi to a few people deciding to go east for better light. Nearing the north side of the pond, I noticed someone that I had greeted earlier. She approached me asking if I might be with Audubon, commenting that my kit made me look like a serious birder! Clearly answering “Yes” she explained that the purpose of her visit was to find someone associated with Audubon in the hopes of getting some expert input for the robotics class project at one of the local stem magnet schools. At the time I had no idea how lucky I had been going east that morning.
