Thanks for Renewing, and Welcome New Members!

I am pleased to see that many of you have already renewed your DOS membership for the year.
Thank you! For those who have still to do so I encourage you to renew as soon as you can. This
makes the book keeping much easier on our end and is one less thing for you to worry about.
And if you’re feeling generous, please consider upgrading to a higher level. Upper level
memberships benefit our society (and Delaware’s birds) even more and are rewarded with much goodwill but also cool free stuff!

Welcome to our 4 new members! We look forward to seeing you on Field Trips and at our Monthly Meetings!

Our new ‘Lucky’ Binocular Straps have arrived!

All summer you probably heard the rumors swirling around town and I can now confirm that the word on the streets is good – the new DOS binocular straps are here!!! The new straps are very spongy and comfortable and can be adjusted to fit any binoculars or camera. They come in 4 attractive colors of Red, Forest Green, Black and Navy Blue, all proudly emblazoned with our society’s name and are for sale at a bargain price of just $15 (yes that’s right – just fifteen clams!). Be the envy of your friends! You can purchase them in person at our meetings or through our web site here.

Don’t forget that we received a fresh supply of attractive DOS baseball caps last spring which
are selling like hot cakes! These also come in a range of stylish colors and are for sale at
meetings or via our web site.

We are thrilled that the new ‘lucky’ DOS straps arrived in time for fall migration. Maybe buying one of these will finally give you that extra bit of fortune needed to find that elusive Connecticut Warbler?

(Incidentally, if you do buy one of our straps and it brings you luck with birds please let me
know at istew@udel.edu as I am compiling a book of ‘DOS lucky strap’ stories).

Ian Stewart, DOS Membership Chair
