Fresno Audubon‘s series of public lectures, which unfortunately has become less frequent (going down from monthly to every other month!), returns this evening with a local ornithologist speaking about birds in the oak woodlands, which includes this yellow-rumped warbler above that I captured at the Sierra Foothills Conservancy‘s McKenzie Preserve last spring. Here’s Fresno Audubon’s blurb about tonight’s talk:
November 10: Rodney Olsen, “Avian Ecology of Oak Woodlands”
Biologist Rodney Olsen will present on the avian ecology of oak woodlands. In this exploration, we will discuss the importance of oak woodlands to bird reproduction, feeding, and migration. We will also explore current threats to oak woodland communities and local conservation efforts.
