The monthly meeting of the Lower Trinity Valley Bird Club will be November 14, 2019 at 6:30 PM.
The speaker is Edward Ellerbe, he will be teaching about Eastern screech-owl ecology and characteristics.
Ed is a founding member of the Texas Master Naturalists, Blackland Prairie Chapter. As a Texas Master Naturalist, he has volunteered for 15 years at the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center doing bird care and education programs with the Center’s dozen or so un-releasable birds. Ed discovered that Eastern screech-owls (EASO’s) were fairly social birds and pre-adapted to thrive in an urban setting. And they are “cute as the dickens.” Willing to nest around homes, EASO’s can be good pest control.
Following retirement from Schlumberger and post-retirement work in the tech sector, Ed fills his time volunteering for the Texas Master Naturalist program. To better understand the birds he works with, Ed completed and received a certificate in Ornithology from Cornell University’s well-respected online course. Ed resides in Plano, Texas with his wife Loretta.
The 6:30 pm meeting will be held at The FLNB Corner, 1822 Sam Houston Street in Liberty, across from First Liberty National Bank.
