The Washington Ornithological Society (WOS) warmly invites you to join us on Feb. 7 when we’ll learn about two powerful
online birding resources: Cornell Lab’s Birds of the World and the Washington Birders Dashboard.
WOS members now enjoy free access to Birds of the World, the world’s most comprehensive ornithology resource. Laura
Kammermeier, our guest speaker from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, will show how this authoritative but accessible
resource can help us deepen our understanding of birds’ life histories, learn families and subspecies, examine songs, calls
and identification features, and find updated range maps. Laura will give us a tour of this impressively dynamic resource
and demonstrate some of its lesser-known features.
Our second speaker will be WOS member and Zella M. Schultz Award recipient, Randy Robinson. Randy created the
Washington Birders Dashboard that went live in 2015. It is based on sightings submitted to eBird from anywhere in
Washington State and it makes those sightings available within a few hours. Randy will show us how to take full advantage
of this wonderful, user-friendly resource. The most recent WOS Newsletter, available at WOS.org, has an interesting and
informative interview with Randy about how he came to create the Washington Birders Dashboard. I highly recommend it.
WOS Monthly Meetings remain open to all as we continue to welcome the wider birding community to join us online.
PLEASE NOTE: This program begins at 7:00 pm; sign-in begins at 6:45 pm.
FOR LOGIN INFORMATION, go to http://wos.org/about-wos/monthly-meetings/. While there, if you are not yet a member
of WOS, I hope you will consider joining.
