RVBC Club Meeting: Feb. 13 , PM 7 PM Grandin Court Baptist Church
Birding with eBird & Other Useful Technology
Presented by Rexanne Bruno
You have probably heard of eBird, but are you using it? Rexanne
Bruno, formerly of Lynchburg but now living in Virginia Beach, will
share the latest information on eBird and how to use it. If you
aren’t using eBird, you’ll be surprised at how it can enhance your
birding experiences. If you already use eBird, you may learn about
some features that you aren’t using. Plus she’ll tell us about other
some other online resources that she uses that are useful to birders.
Rexanne Bruno began birding while living in New Jersey over 30
years ago. She has birded in Virginia for almost the same length of
time - at first while visiting relatives in the Tidewater area and
eventually moving to Lynchburg in the late 1990s. She was a longtime
editor of the Lynchburg Bird Club newsletter, past president
of the Virginia Society of Ornithology (VSO) and serves on the
Second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2) Steering Committee.
She has lead field trips for the VSO, the Lynchburg Bird Club,
and the Virginia Beach Winter Wildlife Festival.
Reminder – We are still having our Holiday Christmas Card Bird Count at this meeting
since we were snowed out in January. Please bring your total number of birds counted on
your received cards to the February meeting. There will be a first and second place prize!
You don't have to list species (how can we when card makers use artistic license), but just
a total number. If you are unable to attend the January meeting, send your number total
with a friend or email RVBC2015@outlook.com.
