Although this in not directly bird related, many of us spend a great deal of time hiking around outdoors, where there is always the potential for injury. As a tour leader, I've found SOLO's Wilderness First Aid to be invaluable; it's a hands-on practical course and I highly recommend it to birders and other outdoor enthusiasts. I hope you can join our group this January 7-8th. Please contact Louise at 203-878-7440 x 502 with questions and to register. See you soon.
