NEVADA RARITIES POSTED TO EBIRD
Birds, Mammals and Reptiles of Tanzania,
byTom & Ann Howell
February 28, 2017
This presentation will cover highlights of a 16-day trip (Sept-Oct 2014) into the northern, and more remote southern, wildlife areas of Tanzania. In addition to the well-known Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire NP, most of the trip was spent in the lesser-known parts of southern Tanzania (Ruaha and Katavi NPs and the Selous Game Reserve). In addition to the usual suspects, new wildlife and scenery not shown in the previous presentation of our 2012 trip to Botswana/South Africa will be shown.

A BIG THANKS TO VORTEX OPTICS
Lahontan Audubon Society owes a huge thank you to Vortex Optics, who each year, for the last 5-plus years, have repaired a box full of well-used (some damaged) LAS binoculars that were used by the 500 or so elementary schoolchildren who attended the LAS field trips at Washoe Lake State Park.
Vortex has never charged LAS a penny for this terrific service and has even paid return shipping back to us.
We encourage anyone who may be looking for binoculars to check out Vortex Optics (www.vortexoptics.com). They have a great variety of binoculars in a large price range and provide amazing service.
Thanks so much, Vortex.
20th Great Backyard Bird Count
Bird watchers around the world take part,
New York, NY, Ithaca, NY, and Port Rowan, ON—A lot has changed since the first Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) was held in 1998. Each year brings unwavering enthusiasm from the growing number of participants in this now-global event. The 20th annual GBBC is taking place February 17-20 in backyards, parks, nature centers, on hiking trails, school grounds, balconies, and beaches—anywhere you find birds.
Bird watchers count the birds they see for at least 15 minutes on one or more days of the count, then enter their checklists at birdcount.org. All the data contribute to a snapshot of bird distribution and help scientists see changes over the past 20 years.
