LET'S GO BIRDING
Come join the Kalmiopsis Audubon Society on our monthly bird-watching outings and see some of the amazing variety of birds in our local area. This is even more fun than seeing pictures or slides of birds. Learn or share tips on spotting birds and bird behavior.
Gary Maschmeyer has scheduled the outings ahead of time so you can plan accordingly. Typically, they are centered in Brookings but also include trips throughout our area. (See our new annual calendar below) Most of the trips will get us back by lunchtime, and participants can leave early.
No birding experience is required, and experts are welcome to come share their knowledge. While we do a lot of walking, when we spot birds, we do a lot of looking, which can require standing in the same spot for long periods of time. Binoculars are recommended, and we have a few binoculars that first-timers may borrow.
These trips are weather-dependent. Rain will postpone any of our bird outings. Any field trip that is rained out will be rescheduled 3 or 4 days later, and those on our emailing list will be notified. Others can call Gary for the rescheduled date. If there is any question as to whether a bird outing is going to be postponed, you may call Gary in the morning before the scheduled outing.
To find out more, contact Gary at 541-412-0806. To be added to our reminder list, send an email Al Collinet at firstname.lastname@example.org
with Let's Go Birding in the subject line.
