Monthly General Meeting (held 3rd Thursday each month except July and August at El Dorado Nature Center). We’ll have a few brief announcements followed by a program, eBird Workshop by guest speaker Robb Hamilton.
Birders are increasing using eBird to keep bird lists, becoming a website that engages the global birding community, and thus a tool gathering unprecedented volumes of information on where and when birds occur in the world. Half a billion bird observations have been contributed so far. Thanks to these contributions, this growing database is an unparalleled information resource on birds.
In the Year of the Bird, Audubon is asking us to be proactive, to make a contribution to protecting birds and their environment to ensure their continuation into the next century. This is something we can do to help. Come discover the wonders and secrets of eBird!
Note: bring your internet enabled smart phone or tablet to follow along and get some hands on practice.
