Nest Box Building Day, Saturday, 8 March 2014
8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Grants Pass High School Shop
8th & Josephine Streets, Grants Pass
Come join Siskiyou Audubon at our annual Nest Box Building Day. We’ll build the birdhouses that fund our society and provide nesting cavities for birds in our region. We expect to build about 400 nest boxes and/or kits. This building day is not for small children because we will be using power equipment and assembly-line techniques for mass-producing the birdhouses. Not every job requires hammering nails. Bring your own hammer, gloves, ear plugs, a sack lunch and whatever you wish to drink. Be prepared for lots of noise and sawdust. Ask Leader Lee Webb if you have questions or need more details, at phone 541-479-6859, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone who helps may take home a nest box of their own.
Next Meeting Thursday, 13 March 2014
Program: “Twitching & Ticking: Oregon’s Record BIG YEAR” by Russ Namitz
Russ Namitz, long-time wildlife biologist and currently a part-time science instructor at Rogue Community College, is past president of the Oregon Birding Association and the holder of the record for most bird species seen in the state of Oregon during one calendar year.
Russ will give a month-by-month account of his quest for the Oregon Big Year record, as he traversed 41,000 miles and hit most of the prime birding spots in the state. He will recount successes, travesties & mishaps as well as a few fish tales.
