Featured are a brass speaking trumpet, round bottom bucket and various patches, badges, caps and photographs.

Have you ever wondered how birds decide where to build their nests and raise their families? What qualities do you think female birds prefer in a mate? Do bird parents and chicks talk to each other, and if so what are they saying?
Dr. Matthew Johnson has investigated these types of questions in several bird species, and he will be presenting his research on shorebird behavior and conservation at the upcoming Plumas Audubon Society meeting May 8, 7 p.m. at the Plumas County library.

Although snow can still be seen speckled across some of the mountains surrounding Round Valley Lake, signs of spring are predominant throughout the historic area. The waters are high, the plant life is turning green and ducks are gliding along the lake in search of their next meal. The peaceful manmade lake is only 3 miles from Greenville, and provides the perfect escape for families to relax and enjoy the beautiful area. Photo by Samantha P. Hawthorne
