Just a reminder that the meeting is TONIGHT

The next meeting of the Washington Ornithological Society will be this
Monday, May 3rd, in Seattle.

May 3 - Ed Schulz and Chuck Henny will present a program on Ospreys

Dr. Henny will discuss using ospreys as a biological indicator species for a
variety of pollutants and his work on ospreys in the Columbia and Willamette
Rivers. Two years ago, the Oregon studies were expanded to include research
on ospreys of the Puget Sound. Dr. Henny has been involved with osprey
research for over thirty years and is a Research Wildlife Biologist with the
U.S. Geological Survey out of the Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science
Center in Corvallis, Oregon.

Ed Schulz will present photographs of the osprey colony in Everett, where he
has been involved with banding and monitoring the nesting activity of some
two dozen breeding pairs for several years.
