Bird Seminars: Breeding & Nesting Behaviors

May 17 & May 18; Sunday 4:30 pm, and Monday at 6:30 pm

We're in the midst of the breeding season for many of our local birds, and in this seminar, Dan will talk about breeding behaviors of birds and how they make and use nests. How do different kinds of birds find each other and come together to breed? There are many fascinating ways that birds forge bonds and find mates and you will learn about many of these fun and amazing courting and mating behaviors. We will also look at some of the different kinds of nests that birds construct in which to place their eggs, from simple scrapes on the ground to elaborately constructed nests. Come learn about some of birds' interesting behaviors...  Shown above: Young Scrub-jays begging from parents...

May Bird Walks

May 20, Wed.: 7-9am—Skinner's Butte

Led by Donna & MIeko, WBU Staff Teammates

•  •  •

May 30, Sat., 7-9am—Mt Pisgah

Led by Caryn Stoess

Call the store to sign up: 541-844-1788

 

Join Staff members Mieko and Donna and colleague Caryn Stoess for these bird walks. Each walk lasts about 2 hours and up to 15 participants can join so all may see and hear birds spotted.

May 20: Skinners Butte. Leaders: Donna and Mieko — This local bird hotspot is often visited by migrating warblers, tanagers, grosbeaks and more. We can check out how big the eaglets are getting in their nest, too. We plan to start from the park below and walk up the butte to the top, so be prepared for walking up the hill. Those that can't do hills could also drive to the top and await us there, too. Sign up IN ADVANCE at the store or via phone and provide phone number and email so we can arrange a meeting location with participants. 

May 30: Mt Pisgah. Leader: Caryn Stoess — Join us at this wonderful "birdy" destination! Walking conditions: we'll walk along the river and through a meadow. We won't hike up the mountain so the change in elevation is minimal. Most walking will be on gravel or dirt paths. Directions and meeting location will be sent to participants in an email before the walk. Note: There is a $4 parking fee for those who do not have an Arboretum or Lane County Pass.

Are you ready to look beyond your yard for birds? Come walk around one of Lane County's birding "hot spots" with other bird lovers and learn about birds and birding. No previous birding experience is necessary for this two hour walk. We'll use our ears and eyes to locate birds and our brains and a field guide to identify them. You'll be surprised by how quickly you start pointing out birds to other people once you learn a few birding basics. Bring binoculars if you have them...let us know if you need to borrow a pair from the store, as a very few pairs are available for bird walk loans. We'll cover techniques for locating birds with your binoculars so you can view them more easily. Bring your questions, bird stories, and sense of adventure. We hope to see you there!
