Subject: [obol] Eugene Birders Night Monday, Jan 15 with Birds of Cuba Presentation
The next Eugene Birders Night (SWOC) meeting will be held Monday, Jan 15,
2017 at 7 pm at the McNail-Riley house, 601 W 13th Ave, Eugene. The
McNail-Riley House is the restored historic house at the NW corner of W.
13th Ave. and Jefferson St. The parking area, located immediately west of
the McNail-Riley House, can be accessed from 13th St, by turning left
(north) shortly before Jefferson St. It may also be accessed by Jefferson
St. via the driveway located immediately north of the M-R House. We are
allowed to park only in the 5 spaces closest to the M-R house. If these
spaces are full, you can take the west exit from the M-R parking lot on to
13 Ave, then go directly across 13th to enter and park in the Fairgrounds
parking lot.
After initial introductions, we’ll share recent sightings and discuss
birding connected topics. Then Sarah Smith de Vasconcellos will transport
us to Cuba via her presentation of her recent birding trip to Cuba. The
presentation will include photos of 18 of the 22 endemic birds that Sarah
saw. Cuba hosts 24 commonly seen endemic birds, as well as 20 more
uncommon ones. We’ll see photos as well as hear about several habitats,
such as the Zapata Swamp, that Sarah visited and the birds that depend on
these habitats.

No entrance fees! All are welcome!
