New Audubon Web Site
National Audubon has launched its new Web site and it is a stunner! The new Web site has tremendous graphics; it's fun just to go to the home page, which has frequently updated bird photos.
Of particular interest to bird lovers is the new "Birds" section. It includes descriptions and photos of all common North American birds, with with commentary by Ohio's own Kenn Kaufman. Just go to www.audubon.org, click on "Birds" in the menu at the top of the page, and enjoy!
Birding by Ear Workshop Full
The Birding by Ear Workshop coming up on Saturday, March 7, is full. If you missed this one, we hope to have another similar workshop in the future.
New Look for the CA Website
Yes, we have a new look! We recently upgraded software used for the Columbus Audubon Web site. While we were at it, we changed the look a bit. But we kept the same no-nonsense approach to help you find what you need quickly and easily.
As with any upgrade, there could be a few glitches. If you see any, or if you just want to comment on what we have done so far, please let us know.
We are planning more updates for the near future, so stop back and visit often.
