BIRD CLUB MEETING:
We'll welcome guest speaker Tara Beveroth, Avian Researcher and Monitoring Coordinator for the Illinois Natural History Survey. Tara coordinates the MOON (Monitoring of Owls and Nightjars) Illinois program, and will be speaking to us about the value and results of the program thus far. [From the MOON webpage:] "In the spring of 2008 Monitoring of Owls and Nightjars, MOON, in Illinois was initiated. MOON is a volunteer based program that occurs throughout the state of Illinois." This summer, Bird Club members will have the opportunity to join us in monitoring our route near Lake Shelbyville, which we adopted in 2016.
The Coles County Bird Club is a group of local people with a shared interest in birds. We meet at the nature center the last Tuesday of each month at 6pm.
