June: The Northern Saw-whet Owl in Oklahoma? Saw-weet!

Abbey Ramirez

Join us June 19 when Abbey Ramirez will be the guest speakers at the Oklahoma City Audubon Society meeting.

Abbey’s presentation will begin with a historical perspective of the Northern Saw-whet Owl, which will cover records of saw-whets  throughout Oklahoma. It will then focus on the results of  first Northern Saw-whet Owl banding station in Oklahoma and  cover methods used for processing and banding saw-whets. 

Abbey Ramirez is a current graduate student at Northeastern State University and has a Bachelor of Science from Oklahoma State University. She is  working under Dr. Mia Revels, who has opened the first  banding station for Northern Saw-whet Owls in  Oklahoma.  Abbey hopes to graduate with her Masters in 2018, then pursue a PhD and focus primarily on avian related  research.

Our meetings are held September through June on the third Monday of each month (with the exception of January, when the meeting is held on the fourth Monday). Meetings begin at 7 p.m. Visitors are always welcome.

Adopt-A-Park at Prairie Dog Point

The members of the Oklahoma City Audubon Society have adopted Prairie Dog Point at Oklahoma City’s Lake Hefner by participating in Oklahoma City Beautiful’s Adopt-A-Park program. Our commitment to the program is for assistance in litter management. The Parks department has responded to our request to have additional trash cans placed around the area to help keep the area clean.

Prairie Dog Point is located at the southwest corner of Lake Hefner. It attracts diverse species of birds throughout the seasons and is especially popular with birders during the spring and fall shorebird migrations. In addition to contributing to the beautification of our community, our participation in the program allows us to promote the area as a location of interest to birders, perhaps helping to avoid further habitat loss. Everyone is invited to participate in our Adopt-A-Park project by picking up litter during birding trips to the Point.
