Well, not any live Chachalacas, but Saturday, April 3rd there will be a benefit dinner for the VINS youth teams heading to Texas for the Great Texas Birding Classic. "Chili and Chachalacas", as we are calling it, will feature a homemade chili dinner (veggie or meat), a silent auction, a live Harris' Hawk and a talk by Bryan Pfeiffer on birds and birding in Texas. It will a fun evening and a great way to support our up-and-coming young birders. Tickets are only $8 for adults, $5 for kids (pay at the door). We start serving dinner at 6pm at the Christ Church on State Street in Montpelier (across the street from the post office). My apologies if any deems this message inappropriate for the listserve!
