Celebration of Spring Migration and Our Birding Community (SWOC)
June 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
We’ll look back upon the abundance of our 2023 Spring Migration and celebrate the skill and enthusiasm of our birding community as we explored the many opportunities presented by this time of renewal. This meeting will be a less structured one. We’ll have more time to discuss some of our finds. We are blessed with a wide range of habitats in the Eugene area. Considering spring migration, which sites have been particularly productive? Newly discovered? Perhaps underbirded. Have some sites been better for some species than others? What are some memorable experiences? New understandings? Discoveries? New questions? I’ll bring some snacks to fortify our discussion. Then, instead of having one featured presentation, people are invited to bring thumb drives with 5-15 minutes of photos. These can be of birds seen during Spring Migration, here or anywhere else people may have traveled to. Or, bird photos from any time or place that people would like to share. If you are able to let me know beforehand that you will be bringing some photos, that would be helpful, but not necessary.
All are welcome! We meet at 7pm on the 3rd Wednesdays of the month at the Alluvium, on the corner of Monroe and W Ave, 810 W 3rd Ave, Eugene in a spacious room suitable for Covid safe protocols. Parking is available on the south and west sides of the building. Since our meeting is after business hours, we can also park in the small lots in front of 301 Monroe St and immediately to the north of 301, across Monroe from Alluvium. Entrance to the Alluvium is on 3rd Ave, the north side of the building. This is the last Southern Willamette Ornithological Club (SWOC) before SWOC goes on vacation in July and August,
Alluvium is a “multi-purpose spiritual space in the Whiteaker neighborhood of Eugene” and is very active in work that supports the needs of the underserved in the community. Admission to this event 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.
