BOGS PRESENTATIONS:
We have presentations by speakers on 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. The presentations cover a wide range of science-related topics. These ususally run from 9-11am at Celeste Campbell Center.
*(The one exception to the 9am starting time on presentation days, (ie 1st and 3rd Thursdays), is the end-of-term Potluck,which begins at 10am)

Bird Walks
Our bird walks are led by Steve Barron. We meet before 9am to arrange car-pooling and drive to our destinations. Once there, we usually walk for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, and get back to Campbell Center around 11:30. Some destinations are further away, such as Finley Refuge and Elijah Bristow Park, so our return might be Noon or even as late as 1:00pm. Usually at least some people want to get back earlier so they arrange to ride together in one car. Trips with later return times are always announced as such ahead of time.

OTHER NEWS

Steve Barron, our bird walk leader, had necessary knee surgery and will be unable to lead our bird walks for the rest of the Spring Term. Doris has been leading the group. THANKS DORIS!! It would be helpful to have some BOGS members with birding skills to step up and take more of a leadership role at pointing out and naming the birds being heard and seen. Pay special attention to folks new to birding or new to our group.

THE LATEST BIRDS REPORTED to eBIRD in Lane County

Back in February or April, the folks who do the computer programming at Cornell's eBird.org website, re-did much of the website. While their work made improvements, especially in the ease of use by smartphones, one unfortunate result is that the widgets by BirdTrax, which use eBird data, no longer function. This will probably be a permanent state of affairs, so I have removed the widgets from the "Recent Sightings" page of this website. I still have a frame with working links from the eBird.org site, so plenty of information can still be gleaned that way.
