September 13, 2018--Birds of Magee Marsh--Warbler Capitol of the World
This is a good program for people who want to see birds up close in their spring breeding plumage. These birds have just flown 3,000 miles to start the breeding season in Canada. Their next step is to refuel and fly across Lake Erie. People who enjoy birds will learn what they are missing by not going to Magee Marsh during peak migration. This program will remove some of the information gaps and anxieties about going to see what others around the world come to see.
October 11, 2018--Avoiding Window Collisions--Ron Kew & Carolyn Minson
Millions of birds die each year due to collisions with the windows in our homes. Each of us could make our home more friendly by making our windows less likely to kill the songbirds we love.
Carolyn Minson of Arkansas Audubon and Ron Kew of Garland County Audubon Society will discuss window deterrents for birds and show how to make one.
November 8, 2018--Climate Science Projections on the Impact to Birds--Ron Kew
This will be a powerpoint presentation taken mostly from information available from the Audubon Works website.
Audubon and other organizations have approximately 100 years of bird sighting data that have been analyzed and show that winter and summer ranges of bird species have been changing as our planet's CO2 levels have increased. What changes have they noticed so far and what are they anticipating in the next 50 years?
Ron Kew is a past president of Garland County Audubon Society and is currently responsible for Society programs and serves as Vice President.
