This looks like a fun volunteer opp (possibly even more fun than pulling
weeds). Please respond to Alice Elshoff if interested.

Subject: [COBOL] Bobolink count help needed at Malheur this Saturday
The Friends of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, in cooperation with
Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, will conduct a Bobolink bird count on
Saturday, June 8.
Bobolink Birdcount Details
We need about 12 people on the morning of Saturday, June 8, to
complete a count of Bobolinks on Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
Bobolinks are very handsome birds, easy to identify, and Malheur is the
westernmost edge of their nesting territory.
Folks who would like to help will be allowed to camp at the P Ranch
(tents or dry-camping RVs), something that is not available to the
public. One doesn't need to be an expert birder, so anyone who would
like to help with this delightful endeavor, Board members included,
need to let me know right away so we can plan the routes.
We will gather at 7 am at P Ranch and the count will start from there.
At 12 noon there will be a complementary lunch, and at 1 pm the Friends
of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge annual meeting begins--you are
welcome to attend.
Please RSVP right away so we can plan the routes or get more details
atcalice58 at gmail.com
or 541 389-3543.
We hope you can join us and help with the Bobolink count. Won't you
please forward this to your bird-loving friends to see if they would
like to help? Thanks!!
Alice Elshoff, Vice President
Friends of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge
