Tomorrow night wraps up the two-part series on beginning bird watching with Alabama Audubon instructor, Greg Harber. Because it is on Zoom, there is no limit to the number of attendees -- be sure to sign up! Part One, available here on our YouTube channel, was an hour and a half of great information ranging from what to look for when identifying birds to what kind of equipment you need to be a backyard birder.  Personally, I learned a lot. I had no idea, for example, that Pine Siskins were coming down with salmonella from dirty feeders! Be sure to bring those feeders inside and clean them thoroughly! 

I have limited experience actually visiting New Orleans, Louisiana. My college buddies and I took a road trip during exam week that was very short and very memorable.  Eventually, my husband and I visited the New Orleans Aquarium. Not exactly full of the Mardi Gras spirit! However, in my reading, I've explored Bourbon Street and the street cafes, along with the unique shops and delicious beignets.  I've walked the streets with Ignatius J. Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces.  And I've explored New Orleans through the eyes of Evelyn and her daughter, Jackie, in A Kind of Freedom.

Although crime rates seem to go down during times of low temperatures and snow, we seem to have an influx in the publication of great crime novels. The titles below are ones that are currently on order in our Fiction collection and will be great reads while we are staying warm at home. Our extreme weather this week made sitting at home in front of some kind of heating source and reading a book very attractive.
