OOS CELEBRATES 10 YEARS!
Winner of the OOS Selfie Photo Contest!
We are proud to announce that the winner of the OOS Birding Selfie Photo Contest is Anna Wittmer! Congratulations Anna! We want to give a big thank you to all the birders who participated in our first contest. Stay tuned for more fun contests in the near future!
Here is a clip from KY Afield featuring Dan Marsh from the Cincinnati Zoo explaining the life and death of the Passenger Pigeon. Although this is sad for all bird lovers to watch, the lessons that we learn will help us to prevent this tragedy in the future, and help us to manage endangered or threatened species successfully.
