The collective noun for crows is murder! For owls it’s parliament, for eagles it's convocation; but what do you call a group of folks who gather to see, hear, and do all things about birds? We’re not sure, but there was a flock of them at the Harvey Hall greeting in April, and it was amazing!
With the proximity to the popular Mary’s Point Bird Sanctuary, the Harvey Hall’s event planning committee, Debbie James from Hopewell Cape and Jane Chrysostom from Alma, engaged artists, authors, presenters, speakers, exhibitors, sellers, organizations, cooks, and enthusiasts who came from all over New Brunswick to participate in the first BIRDS, Birds, birds Day! Lunch, door prizes, a captivating presentation by local naturalist Gordon Rattray in the morning, and another (with real, live hooting) in the afternoon by owl expert Denis Doucet, caught everyone’s attention and interest.
