80 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, April 11 - Monday, April 14, 2008 Prime Hook Refuge to host birding field trip April 16 The first birding field trip of the 2008 season at Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge will take place on Wednesday, April 16, with a close look at early migrants. Participants should meet at 8 a.m. at the refuge head- quarters. Led by volunteer naturalists Bill Fintel, Sally Fintel and Ed Sigda, this trip is an ideal time to look and listen for returning neotropi- cal migrants which can be found on the refuge. A few examples include ovenbird, yellow-throated warbler, prothonotary warbler, white-eyed vireo, indigo bunting and blue grosbeak. Visitors can also expect to find some early returning shorebirds, such as pec- toral sandpiper and greater yel- lowlegs, plus late migrant water- fowl, such as blue-winged teal. Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge has a wealth of interest- ing, and often unusual bird life. On past field trips, participants have cumulatively observed more than 200 different species of birds. The goal is always to have every- one on the trips see all the birds encountered. Additionally, organ- izers try to focus on the best birds for the time of year. All trips will go rain or shine, so bring a waterproof jacket and hat. Reservation deadline for Holocaust documentary premier set-April 21 "No Denying: Delawareans Bear Witness to the Holocaust," a documentary featuring the eyewit- ness testimony of Delawareans who personally experienced the horrors of the Holocaust, will have its world premiere at 4:30 p.m., Sunday, May 4, at Tatnall School, Laird Arts Center in Greenville. Part I of the four-disC DVD set will be shown in its entirety. The documentary illuminates the com- pelling recollections of extreme human courage, faith, and physi- cal and emotional strength, during times of unspeakable terror, cruel- ty and indifference. This event marks the kickoff of a campaign to fund the Holocaust Education Endowment Fund of The Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Committee. The fund will support Holocaust education activities and projects throughout Delaware. All dona- tions to the endowment fund are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. The DVD set and a companion guide will be distributed to all public, parochial and private schools and public libraries in Delaware. DVD sets will also be available for individual sale. At the "No Denying" premiere, Diana Wheeler, a teacher at Cape Henlopen High School, will reflect on her experience teaching about the Holocaust and receiving special training from the Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Committee. Admission to the event is $35 and includes a variety of Eastern European light fare and refresh- ments. Seating is limited and must be reserved no later than April 21.
