Participate in weekly Vesper Sparrow monitoring efforts from last week in April through the first week in July. All experience levels welcome. The Klamath Bird Observatory and Vesper Meadow Education Program are teaming up to study the imperiled Oregon Vesper Sparrow at the Vesper Meadow Restoration Preserve. Estimated to be down to 2,000-3,000 individuals, and declining by 5% per year, it is one of North America’s most imperiled birds. The scenic Vesper Meadow Restoration Preserve, located just 30 minutes from downtown Ashland, is home to the highest elevation population of the OR Vesper Sparrow – creating a unique research opportunity as part of a range-wide Oregon / Washington research collaboration. These community-powered surveys will involve

re-sighting color banded OR Vesper Sparrows from 2018, and moderate to challenging walking through wet meadow and forest-edge habitat. To get involved, mail jeanine@vespermeadow.org or attend the Volunteer Training and Information talk. Pizza provided!
