OUR PURPOSE

Our goal is to create a network of members to make life in our neighborhood easier and more fulfilling, while maintaining our autonomy and quality of life in our homes.

GNPS BIRDWATCHERS

had a glorious walk with an unexpected sighting of loads of local and migrating birds on and around a Kousa Dogwood tree.  The walk ended with a view of the juvenile red-tailed hawk who had been making the blue jays and the squirrels squawk.  Here is the link to the list of birds and photos provided by Gabriel Willow, the leader of the 9/28 bird walk - https://ebird.org/checklist/S95292958.
