SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BLURBIRD CLUB
MINUTES JULY 6, 2019
President Bill Wallace presiding:

We were saddened to hear that one of the Club’s founders, Sully Reallon,  died on July 5. A funeral was held on July 19 in Ladera Ranch. Several club members attended.  A tribute scholarship committee has been formed, and more will be announced at a later date.

Newcomers: Lara Tseng and her parents Mr. and Mrs. Tseng, Norman and Judy Fries, Laurie Jacobs, Manny Bojoiques

Treasurer’s Report: Jo-Ann Collier Treasurer:
CCI Net $8,99.82 SCBC Net $4,865.84 Combined $13,854.46

Presentations: Gillian Martin had a very productive meeting with the Edison Company. Edison said they are developing a comprehensive, dead tree removal plan for Northern California, and welcomed her input. AND GOOD NEWS! The International Society of Arbor Culturists published literature now considers birds and their nests in the category of “Best Practices” when pruning!

Gillian Martin introduced Lara Tseng. Laura is a 13 year-old monitor for Mission Viejo. Laura has studied and acquired a wealth of information about the birds of our area. She has documented 31 species of birds in Aurora Park, and she discussed her “crushed” and baked egg shell experiment to provide calcium-rich feed for birds. She said there is a need for more dead tree habitat.

Sue Bulger demonstrated a very effective way to apply “NECTAR FORTRESS” to eliminate ants in nesting boxes. Amazon carries the product. Sue always gives us good, practical information.

Mark LAMORTE discussed the problem of the Shothole Borers threat to trees. 64 species of trees, so far, have been affected. Research is going on now to learn how to control this damaging pest.

Announcements: March 11th through the 15th, 2020 is the NABS Convention in Kearney Nebraska for the Sandhill Crane migration. Bill urged the members who could go, not to miss the art instillation of the “Field of Lights” in Paso Robles (call for information)…Near Hwy 46, east to Hwy 5…Wed. through Sun. 7:30 to 11:00 P.M.

TRAIL TALES: This year, the second nestling is down in number, and the number of eggs in the second nesting are about half of the number in the first.
Bill announced the “Brews & Blues” event at the Fullerton Arboretum in Aug. 17th. $45 admission

The next meeting will be on Saturday, August 3, at 9:00 A.M.

Respectfully Submitted,

Jane Olinger, Secretary
