Have you ever wondered how birds decide where to build their nests and raise their families? What qualities do you think female birds prefer in a mate? Do bird parents and chicks talk to each other, and if so what are they saying?
Dr. Matthew Johnson has investigated these types of questions in several bird species, and he will be presenting his research on shorebird behavior and conservation at the upcoming Plumas Audubon Society meeting May 8, 7 p.m. at the Plumas County library.

The Panther Fire in Tehama County burned 6,864 acres and was 60 percent contained as of Monday morning
The fire started the morning of May 1 in a rugged area of the Deer Creek Canyon north of Butte Meadows and Highway 32.Strong winds pushed the fire up steep slopes and the fire had grown to over 6,000 acres by Friday morning.
Although snow can still be seen speckled across some of the mountains surrounding Round Valley Lake, signs of spring are predominant throughout the historic area. The waters are high, the plant life is turning green and ducks are gliding along the lake in search of their next meal. The peaceful manmade lake is only 3 miles from Greenville, and provides the perfect escape for families to relax and enjoy the beautiful area. Photo by Samantha P. Hawthorne
