Bird Club and Rock River Archaeological Society Host Joint Presentation

(Horicon) There is a joint meeting of the Horicon Marsh Bird Club and the Rock River Archaeological Society scheduled for later this month.  The meeting which will be held at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitors Center, will focus on the topic of the now extinct Passenger Pigeon.  Kelly Bleich of Randolph will present the program and have a mounted Passenger Pigeon on display.  He will relate how the skies used to be darkened when a flock went overhead, such as the flock that flew overhead in March of 1871.  A flock so large that it spanned 72 miles long and 12 miles wide and nearly 12 hours to pass.   This combined meeting is scheduled for Wednesday November 20th at 6:30pm.  Doors will open at 6, and refreshments will be served after the program.   Those seeking more information can call 920-210-7865.
