Birding Ecuador with the OOS in 2022!

Join the Ohio Ornithological Society and Sabrewing Nature Tours in Ecuador in 2022!

The Ohio Ornithological Society has arranged this unforgettable tour to Ecuador exclusively for our members! Spaces will fill up quickly!

Ecuador is full of incredible birding areas but Mindo is the most famous of them all. On this tour, we’ll spend a week visiting all of the amazing birding locations in this part of Ecuador. Some of our stops will include Silanche, Milpe, Mashpi, Long-wattled Umbrellabird Reserve, and Refugio Paz de las Aves where Angel Paz will feed his famous antpittas.

At the end of the tour we’ll also have a day to visit Antisana National Park to see the high elevation species that call the park home, as well as time to explore Quito!

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE OOS

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE OOS

DISAPPOINTING BUT EXPECTED NEWS

This is the time of year we would look forward to our 2021 Winter Raptor Extravaganza at the Wilds in January and annual Warblers and Wildflowers weekend at Shawnee State Park in May.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the inability to safely and responsibly gather in person, the Ohio Ornithological Society will not be holding these events this year. Regional Directors’ bird walks are also on hiatus until gathering in person is safe again.

As soon as we are able to plan in-person events, presentations, and field trips, we will inform our members and supporters.

Meanwhile, stay tuned for announcements of virtual events like the upcoming January (date TBA) Zoom webinar presentation featuring northeast Ohio young birders “The Bird Nerds” and Buster Banish, moderated by Tykee James.

We hope you all stay safe until we can bird together in person again.

CANCELLED – 2020 Warblers & Wildflowers Weekend

CANCELLED – 2020 Warblers & Wildflowers Weekend

Dear Warblers & Wildflowers 2020 Registrants and Potential Registrants:

March 17, 2020
It is with great regret that we announce the cancelation of Warblers & Wildflowers for 2020. We will certainly miss seeing everyone at Shawnee State Park, but do not want to risk anyone’s health by continuing to think we could hold a large gathering in early May.

For those people who have already registered, we hope to be processing refunds by the end of this week.

We hope that everyone stays safe and healthy during this international crisis. The warblers will still come through our state and we hope you have a good place to enjoy them near you. And we’ll let you know the dates for next year’s festival as soon as we have finalized them.

OOS President Tim Colborn
OOS Events Committee Co-Chairs, Diana Steele & Melissa Wales
OOS Events Committee members Kathy McDonald & Kelly Ball
