UPDATE! Registration Now Open!
Join your fellow OOS members at Shawnee State Park for a celebration of Warblers and Wildflowers! Not only will this event give you a chance to head south to meet the first big wave of spring migration, you’ll also get to enjoy excellent presentations, the charm of the Shawnee State Park lodge, and the wonderful fellowship of a bunch of fun, avid birders.
We’ll gather on Friday evening for a social hour, welcome remarks and a showing of the movie The Big Year. Afterwards there will be short outings for night birds, including owls and perhaps Chuck-Will’s-widows. Saturday we’re up early for morning field trips, lunch in the field, then back to the lodge for concurrent programs. Saturday evening we’ll enjoy dinner in the banquet hall, review the day’s sightings and run the check list, recognize some OOS all-stars, then enjoy the evening program by our very own Laura Keene and Christian Hagenlocher, who will tell us about their experiences as two of four birders to break Neil Hayward’s 2013 ABA record. More owl and nightjar trips will be taken and we’ll have a mothing station on the lodge’s patio. Sunday we’ll enjoy breakfast, our all-too-soon goodbyes and field trips on your own. http://ohiobirds.org/2017/04/12/warblers-wildflowers-weekend

Raven Rock State Nature Preserve is a little-known park you can only visit after you’ve obtained a permit. It’s named after the unique rock formation that overlooks the Ohio River Valley. In addition to stunning views, this overlook connects to a mesmerizing natural arch.
