"The Biggest Week in American Birding and My Work Detail
to Ottawa National Wildlive Refuge in Northeast Ohio"

Black Swamp Bird Observatory, Magee Marsh Wildlife Area, and the Ottawa Refuge are all hot birding spots during spring migration. Many birds migrate through Ohio and fly across or along the shores of Lake Erie to get to their northern nesting habitats of Canada. Thirty-five warblers and 200 other bird species were recorded during the Biggest Week (May 5 - 14, 2017). Join Terri as she tells us about her experiences birding in Ohio.

Terri is the lead ranger at the Red River NWR, where she oversees public use of the 4 refuge units in the Red River Valley. She received her B.S. degree in biology from the University of Wisconsin-Steven Point, and her M.S. degree in wildlife science from New Mexico State University. Before coming to Louisiana, Terri worked as a wildlife biologist and outreach specialist in Jackson, Mississippi, with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at an Ecological Services Office (Endangered Species Office) for just over 17 years. She has studied and worked with: threatened Louisiana black bear, threatened gopher tortoise, threatened piping plover, endangered Mississippi sandhill crane, endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, endangered interior least tern, endangered Arkansas cave crayfish, and endangered Alabama cave shrimp.

The meeting is free and open to the public.   See the map below for the location of the meeting place on the LSUS campus.  For more information, including directions, call Larry Raymond at 318-347-3134 or Mac Hardy at 318-797-5338. Or contact either of them by email:
