Until further notice, our WOS Monthly Meetings are being held online only. There will be no in-person meetings.
WOS Monthly Meeting, October 5, 2020 – David Fraser: “Things I Learned Birding For 31 Years With Tom Briggs: A Man I Never Met.”
Monday, October 5, 2020 7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. (PDT)
(Note: 7:15 p.m. GoToMeeting sign-in; meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.)
David Fraser is a biologist, birder and sketcher who, 30 years ago, set off on a journey when an unknown birder’s notes came into his possession. These near daily bird observations, which commenced in 1959, have proved to be key mileposts to recognizing changes in the avifauna of Vancouver Island, where breeding records of Horned Larks, nesting locations for Western Bluebirds and records of other species are now rare or no longer found. In his presentation, Fraser demonstrates how entry of historic data such as these into eBird can document significant changes in bird life.

As we have since the start of these challenging times, WOS invites all to join via GoToMeeting (GTM). If you are not a WOS member, please consider joining today at WOS membership.
WOS Meetings [when in-person meetings resume post-pandemic] are free and open to all. They are held the first Monday of each month, October through June, at the Center for Urban Horticulture on the University of Washington campus, 3501 NE 41st St. in Seattle. Doors open at 7:00 PM for socializing and the program begins at 7:30 PM.
Are you a WOS member who lives outside the Seattle area, or are you traveling? Live videoconferencing to our monthly meetings is a benefit to membership in WOS. You can attend these meetings remotely using GoToMeeting (GTM). At meeting time, using your computer, tablet or smartphone, simply follow the GTM link provided in the meeting announcement email (sent the week beforehand to WOS members).
It is necessary to download the GoToMeeting app once in order to join meetings. For those who may already have the GTM app installed, you will need that meeting’s Access Code (unique to each meeting), which is also included in the meeting announcement email.
You can also dial in using your phone (audio only: the experience will be far less satisfying).
