Subject: [obol] Eugene Birders Night Monday, May 20th, with “Birding in Central Colombia”
The next Eugene Birders Night (SWOC) meeting will be held Monday, May 20th,
2019, 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 Kit Larsen and Dennis Arendt will show
photos and videos from their trip to Bogotá and all three ranges of the
Andes. Central Colombia is the place where the Andes mountains split into
three ranges. On top of the eastern range is the huge city of Bogotá. In
the central range, there is a 18,000 foot volcano with hot springs and
waterfalls on its flanks. The eastern range holds the wettest rainforest
in the Americas. Traveling in these diverse habitats, their group saw more
than 400 species with over 55 species of hummingbirds and 7 species of the
often secretive antpittas.

No entrance fees! All are welcome!
