    Mike and I really enjoyed the ever growing group of Egrets and Herons as well as the friendly group of congenial folks. Fun way to spend an evening. Thanks for this opportunity.

    It was amazing to see so many birds in a small area. We really enjoyed the evening.

    Thousands of birds on such a tiny island. Everyone really enjoyed watching the numbers grow toward dark until there was no space left! Very cool!

    Where specifically in the park is the viewing? I am not familiar with the park. Sorry.

      I can't find the name of the small road into the park, but there is a sign on Hwy. 95 pointing to Murphy Park. Meet us between the pool and the lake - in other words the west side of the lake. the ball fields are on the east side. Turn left just after you cross the bridge over the lake inlet.

    My earlier message should have said if you can't join us on the 10th (not the 8th) plan to visit the Rookery some evening and check it out. (I had the 8th in my mind thinking about my mom's birthday.) Sorry about that.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
