Beginning birder tours
The Ohio Ornithological Society is accepting signups for guided beginner bird tours during the International Migratory Bird Day weekend. The OOS, in cooperation with the ODNR Division of Wildlife, will be conducting guided bird walks May 13 and 14 at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area. These outings are targeted at novice or new birding enthusiasts and help people who are new to birding get better acquainted with the beauty of birds.
The walks on May 13 will be held at 8:30 a.m., 11:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and the walks on May 14 will be held at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Walks are limited to 15 participants each and will be filled on first come, first served basis. To sign up, applicants should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All emails should contain the applicant's name, phone number, date and requested time-slot. A return email will confirm the meeting place, date and time. Please meet at the OOS tent at your scheduled time to begin the walk.
Birders and others who enjoy nature and want to help fund conservation in Ohio can now purchase the 2017 Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp. The sale of the Ohio Wildlife Legacy Stamp benefits the Wildlife Diversity Fund, which is used to protect and manage wild animals and their habitats.
