1. Thanks to a partnership with Cornell Lab of Ornithology, WOS is pleased to announce a terrific new benefit for its
members: free online access to “Birds of the World” beginning in October 2021.  Birds of the World — the world’s largest
online encyclopedia of birds -- allows you to enjoy the breathtaking diversity of the world’s birds and helps you decode their
fascinating behaviors.  Inside its 10,700+ scholarly, in-depth species accounts you’ll find expertly curated media galleries
with photos, videos, and sound recordings, dynamic range maps, breeding calendars, and other life history details. Soak up
detailed accounts of every species and every family and use the Taxonomy Explorer to explore the birds in your own county.

2. One of the highlights of the now-canceled Oregon Birding Association-Washington Ornithological Society’s Conference
in September was to have been a keynote presentation by Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Dr. John Fitzpatrick.  Conference
sponsors are currently making arrangements to have Dr. Fitzpatrick give his keynote presentation -- “Wild Birds Are Now the
Canaries, and Our Planet Is the Coal Mine” – on Saturday, September 18.  The presentation will be open to all via Zoom.  
The time of his presentation on September 18 and information about how to access it will be announced shortly at
3. WOS Monthly meetings will resume on Monday, October 4, 2021 at 7:30 pm.  This and the remaining meetings in
2021 will take place entirely by remote means (via GoToMeeting).
