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, is having knee surgery and will be unable to lead our April 26 bird walk at Golden Garden Ponds. We will need some BOGS members with birding skills to step up and take more of a leadership role on the upcoming walks. We have many fine birders who can point out and name the birds being heard and seen. I (Priscilla) will help with that on later walks, but will be out of town on April 26.

BOGS member Betsy Huffsmith will be the Featured Artist for the month of May at the New Zone Gallery. This will begin at the First Friday Art Walk on May 4. The New Zone Gallery on 8th street between Charnelton and Lincoln will be featuring Betsy's vividly brilliant acrylic paintings.
While much of Betsy's previous work has been landscapes, her latest Series of works are titled "Wave Power: Dynamism in Nature". These paintings depict ocean waves.

THE LATEST BIRDS REPORTED to eBIRD in the Southern Willamette Valley and the Central Coast

There is now a STATEWIDE RARITIES widget,
as well as a REGIONAL RARITIES widget (covering 40 miles around Eugene).
There are also widgets covering:

  1. A circle surrounding the Finley Wildlife Refuge area
  2. A circle covering the Southern Willamette Valley
  3. NEW ADDITIONS are four widgets covering Florence, Yachats, Waldport and Newport!

Most eBird data provides only confirmed sightings, but a rare bird might not stick around as long as it takes for a report to be confirmed by local eBird reviewers. The two RARITIES widgets near the top of the page give the quickest public access to reports of such sightings.

CLICK HERE for the webpage for RARE and RECENT BIRD sightings.
