(Northeast Texas Field Ornithologists)

We invite you to join us for meetings, field trips and other birding activities here in Northeast Texas.

Our Meetings are generally on the first Wednesday of each month (September through May). We meet at 6:30 PM at Greggton United Methodist Church, 1101 Pine Tree Road, in Longview, Texas. We meet in the Community Room, located on the backside of the church (away from Pine Tree Road).

Our Newsletter has been discontinued until we can find a volunteer or volunteers to publish one. In the meantime, E-mails are being sent out to remind members about our meetings and other activities, and monthly bird reports are posted on this web site, along with information about our meetings and other activities.

Annual membership dues are $10. You can send a check (payable to NETFO) to our treasurer, Gene Peiter, at 603 Loraine Court, Longview, Texas 75604. Or you can pay him at one of our meetings. Be sure to give him your E-mail address if you want to receive e-mail notices about our birding activities.

Our Bird reports are compiled and distributed by David Brotherton. Be sure to report your notable Northeast Texas bird sightings to David each month at birder10050(at) Our Bird Reports web page offers additional information about reporting your Northeast Texas bird sightings.

Our Checklist, Birds of Northeast Texas, Second Edition, 1999, is available for $1 at our regular monthly meetings or by contacting Gene Peiter at peiter(at) Patches and tee-shirts are also available with our Northeast Texas Field Ornithologists logo.
