The 2023 banding season is over, and our staff have had time to breathe. Meet our new Banding Program Manager, Lucinda, and Martin, Lead Bander, to learn about KBO’s international banding program and internships. Plus, we will have some surprise intern Zoom pop-ins who will tell us their stories. Come learn about why bird banding is such an important tool for bird conservation and the amazing people who do this work.
The Klamath Bird Observatory board members are excited to introduce our fall outreach and FUNdraising events.
Let’s Talk Bird Series
Join Shannon Rio for three weeks of classes, chatting about our local birds and ending with a field trip. Powerpoint presentations will include, for example, a deep dive into a specific group of birds like woodpeckers and learning fun bird factoids. We will explore the use of a variety of bird guides and info books. This class is collaborative and interactive and meant to be fun. We will meet at noon for 1 1/2 hours, so bring a sack lunch along with your curiosity. Please bring your favorite guidebook for referencing the species we are learning about and sharing with the group. The class will be capped off with an all-day outing to use what you have learned.
Dates: September 11th, 18th, 25th, and field trip on Sep 30th or Oct 1st.
