 ONC/Ornithology (OG)

OG members are interested in birds. Some members focus on bird identification and listing, some enjoy studying bird behavior and habitat, some just enjoy watching birds. The OG is organized to accommodate all of these diverse birding interests. Members also benefit from the synergism of getting together to share knowledge and interests during the group's activities. OG also publishes a group newsletter, the Spoonbill and maintains a separate OG website. We meet the first Monday, August through May, except September when we meet the second Monday, at
