Birding Southern Africa-Eugene Birders Night (SWOC)
November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Birding Southern Africa, from Namibia to South Africa and beyond, Tim Griffith presents. After initial introductions, we’ll share recent sightings and discuss birding connected topics. Tim, who holds a graduate degree in Wildlife Ecology, has birded in all 50 states and over 40 foreign countries. Most people go to Southern Africa for the big 5, lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and African buffalo. They also tour as part of a large group that follows a guide from town to town. Tim Griffith, on the other hand, travels to Africa to bird. While everyone in the “tent” camp is watching lions, elephants and such, Tim is looking out the other side of the bush vehicle at the Lilac-breasted Rollers, Secretary Birds, White-backed mousebirds, Fishing Eagles, and Southern Carmine Bee Eaters.Tim’s presentation will provide a broad stroke view of the birds he encountered while traveling through Southern Africa.
Entrance to the building at 810 Monroe St, Eugene is on 3rd Ave, the north side of the building. Parking is available on the south and west sides of the building and across the street in the small lots in front of 301 Monroe St., since the meeting is after business hours. Admission is free but we encourage donations which will contribute to the operating costs of this worthy non-profit venue.

Our monthly program meetings have something for everyone. During the last year we hosted programs by naturalists, wildlife artists and expert birders on a variety of topics from the birds of Hawaii, to ravens, wolves, and people, to the migration of red knots. Participating in a program meeting is a fun way to get involved with Lane County Audubon. Meetings are free and open to all.
We are currently meeting on Zoom and in-person as conditions allow on the 4th Tuesday of each month between September and May at 7:00 p.m.
