For the Birds
Eat outdoors with feathered friends
You love being outside among birds -- watching them, tracking them, listening to them sing, and hanging out with other bird lovers. You must be a member of the Tropical Audubon Society, the organization devoted to observing the winged critters in practically every park around the state. If you aren't, here's the ultimate opportunity to commune with your fellow bird lovers. From noon to 2:00 p.m. the Tropical Audubon Society Picnic and Annual Meeting will take place at the Doc Thomas House (5530 Sunset Dr., South Miami) in the back yard under the chickee. It's potluck, so make the meal of your choice. Cooking up quail for everyone might be a bad idea, though. Call 305-666-5111 and tell them what you'll bring.-- Nina Korman
