March Monthly Meeting Tonight (3/21): What eBird can do for you & what you can do for eBird

Posted · Add Comment

Greetings all, please join the Delmarva Ornithological Society tonight for our monthly meeting! In addition to our regular monthly program, we will have a pre-meeting showing of the newly released short documentary entitled “Feast on the Beach” which DOS helped to produce. We will also be announcing the recipient of our annual Conservation Award! Don’t miss it!

Forget that you lost an hour of sleep this weekend, or that Mother Nature can decide whether it’s winter or spring and join us for an evening with a great presentation just in time to prep for spring migration! Welcome fellow DOS members Holly Merker and Joe Sebastiani as they describe the benefits of eBird.

Learn how to use eBird and how this online bird sightings database can help you as a birder. eBird has added a lot of new capabilities recently, from uploading photos and audio, to creating a personal sightings profile, to notifications about rarities, and much more. Easy and fun to use, eBird is the perfect complement to your binoculars and field guide, and if you want to know where the birds are…just as important. Holly Merker and Joe Sebastiani will share the benefits of eBird with you, with a Delaware focus.

Meetings are typically held at Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin, DE. Social hour and refreshments are at 7:00pm, followed by the meeting and presentations at 7:30pm. If you’d like to bring snacks to share or contribute photographs to the pre-meeting slideshow, please contact our meeting hostess, Kelley Nunn at: kelley.nunn@gmail.com.

I hope to see you there!
