January Hernando Audubon Activities
Hernando Audubon Meeting: Photographing Declining Species Around the World.
In recent years Chuck and Nancy Bell have traveled to remote spots around the world as they photographed birds and mammals whose populations have been dramatically reduced. They will speak about their travels and display their stunning photos of these endangered species.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, January 26, at 7 p.m., at Brooksville Woman’s Club, 131 S. Main Street, Brooksville. There is no charge and all are welcome.

Hernando Audubon Class on eBird for Beginners, Saturday, January 7.
Meet at 9 a.m. at Chinsegut Conservation Center, 23212 Lake Lindsey Road, Brooksville.Learn how to enter your bird sightings into eBird. eBird is a free app developed by Cornell Lab of Ornithology that can be used on a computer or smart phone with which you enter your bird sightings and share them with others. eBird keeps track of all the birds you have seen, including when and where you saw them. These entries then provide researchers, scientists, and amateur naturalists with real-time data about the abundance and distribution of birds. We will watch a video about how to enter reports of bird sightings, and have time for questions.
This program is part of a celebration of National Bird Day at Chinsegut Conservation Center.
Check the center’s websites for other activities going on that day: https://myfwc.com/education/programs/chinsegut/ and https://www.facebook.com/CHINSEGUTCONSERVATIONCENTER
