      Counting Birds at Christmas



      The CBC (Christmas Bird Count) has its roots 105 years ago as a political
      and social activity. From it's beginning with only 27 "counters" to over
      50,000 people in more than 2000 locations, these counts have come to play an
      increasingly important role in monitoring bird species.



      The Mendocino Coast Audubon Society has sponsored a Christmas Bird County on
      the south coast for 27 years. Find out what we have learned about our own
      coastal area and how you can be a supporter of this fun, as well as
      important activity. Ron LeValley, Art Morley and Warren Wade will share
      pictures and stories and tell you what birds to look for during the holidays
      here on the coast. This entertaining evening will begin a 7:00 p.m. at
      the Caspar Community Center on Monday, November 21, 2005. The public is
      invited and a small donation is welcomed to help offset the cost of the
      facility.

        A Natural History of Birds in Ecuador

        Presented by Rudy Gelis

        When: Monday November 20, 2006 7:00 p.m

        Where: Caspar Community Center



        Rudy Gelis began his career in ornithology when he was awarded a Thomas J.
        Watson Fellowship in 1997. After studying nesting Andean Condors in
        Argentina and penguins on the Falkland Islands, he settled in Ecuador. Over
        the past decade, as an active member of the Yanayacu Natural History Group
        based in cloud forest of northeastern Ecuador, he has collaborated in
        numerous publications in refereed ornithology journals. In Ecuador he has
        studied the nests and breeding behavior of Long-wattled Umbrellabird,
        Red-winged Wood-Rail, Fiery-throated Fruiteater, five species of antpitta,
        Masked and Bluish Flowerpiercers, Barred Hawk, plus many dozens more. He has
        assisted in other ornithological works, including breeding bird surveys in
        the northeast U.S. and clay-lick use by parrots and macaws in the rainforest
        of southeastern Peru. Rudy instructs university-level natural history
        courses in Ecuador and frequently offers ecotourism courses and assists in
        professional workshops for guides and park guards in Latin America. Applying
        his strong background in botany and great interest in all of the natural
        world, Rudy leads birding and natural history tours throughout much of
        Ecuador and Peru. He is co-author with Murray Cooper of "Plumas: Birds in
        Ecuador ", a fine art photography book published in Quito. He currently
        lives in Quito, Ecuador.
