Stone Counties. This is only 10 days away now! Last year 148 species

Hudsonian Godwit and Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow. Don't miss this
great opportunity to explore one of the best counties in the state for
rarities. Saturday morning birders meet for breakfast at 7am at the
Marietta American Legion located one block west of Co. Rd. 7 on Hwy 4.
They form into groups and head out for the morning. At noon they stop
back for lunch and sharing of info. That night there is a chicken
dinner at 7:30pm at the Sons of Norway Hall on Hwy 75 in Madison, eleven
miles east of Marietta. Reservations are required for the dinner and

The dinner is $10. Lodging is available in Madison, Montevideo, Dawson
or Appleton. Camping is available at Prairie Marsh Farm, 1770 151st
Ave., Marietta, located 7 miles west of US 75 and 1.5 miles south of US
