  • Learn how to identify birds that come to feeders in winter, at 7 p.m. Feb. 12, as David Yeamans gives his talk on backyard bird identification in the Los Alamos area.
    What is that bird? Can anyone help me figure out what bird I’m seeing? Yeamans will try to help. During the program, he will share photos, videos and sounds to aid in everyday bird watching. There will be a concentration on about 20 common birds, ranging from easily recognizable to complicated.
    After the talk, the floor will be open for sharing problematic bird identifications, bird feeding ideas and techniques and general birding information.
    Yeamans has watched birds most of his life, starting in Los Alamos many years ago.
    For the past five years, he has been a self-described “semi-pro” birder.

  • Love is in the air and if you’re one of those people who never knows what to get their loved one for Valentine’s Day, the Lads of Enchantment can help you express your love and devotion.
    The group will travel throughout the community on Thursday, singing love songs.
    “We sing three Valentines songs and we present a rose to your loved one,” Joe D’Anna said. “We will come to your home or place of work, so long as we are not violating any owner or management policies.”
    The cost is $35 and although it is seen as a fundraiser, the gents said they do it to bring joy to the recipients and hopefully raise a little awareness for future programs.
    If they happen to raise a few extra dollars, they spread the wealth with those funds, too.
    “In the past, we have sponsored the attendance of high school students to music camps in the Los Alamos area, but in recent years we sponsored the attendance of Los Alamos high school students to New Mexico Youth Harmony Camp,” D’Anna said.
    The Duke City Sound of the Barbershop Harmony Society has hosted the New Mexico Youth Harmony Camp for the last 12 years.

  • Caitlin (“Katie”) Haynes, a senior at Los Alamos High School, was honored as Rotary Student of the Month for January. Haynes is the daughter of Karen and Don Haynes and older sister of Trip Haynes.
    The Rotary Club of Los Alamos selects one student each month of the school year to honor as a Student of the Month.
    In addition to high school seniors, high school juniors are now eligible for the recognition. Students are nominated by their teachers and chosen on the basis of their academic achievement, extra-curricular activities, and in particular, their service to the community.
    Haynes is an active member of the LAHS Hilltalker Speech and Debate Team, an award-winning club and has served as a team captain for three years. Active on the national debate circuit, she has won awards at what are considered some of the most competitive tournaments in the country.
    She has also received the National Forensic League’s highest honor — the title of Academic All-American, an award based on service. She is a National Merit semi-finalist and a member of the National Honor Society, where she currently serves as treasurer.
