The Columbia Audubon Society does not publish a monthly newsletter during June, July, or August. Although we will continue to update the website with summer events and field trips (several are planned), and reminder emails will still be sent to those who are subscribed to the relevant email lists, there will be no full newsletter or regular news postings during this time. The next edition of The Chat will come out on September 1st.

Although summer heat can make us all feel as grumpy as this Eastern Phoebe fledgling looks, this season is also a great time to pay attention to our resident breeding birds and try to observe mating, nesting, and rearing behaviors. Enjoy your summer birding!
