Fastest Things On Wings

Jul 6, 2015

In the list of unusual jobs, "hummingbird rehabber" must rank pretty high.  But hummingbirds do get hurt, and Terry Masear is there to help them back to health, where possible.  

  It seems that even people who are relatively jaded about wildlife get interested when hummingbirds are involved.  Terry describes her job and its successes in her book "Fastest Things On Wings."  


Even if you didn't notice the blooming flowers and warmer temperatures, you might have heard the singing of birds as spring settles into the region.

A bunch of migratory species show up in the springtime, and the people of the Klamath Bird Observatory go out to... uh, observe.

In fact, KBO leads "Talk and Walk" events to share the highlights of the seasonal birds.

The State Of The Birds 2014

Sep 9, 2014

The release of the State of the Birds report is an annual event; 2014 marks the fifth anniversary of the first report. 

And this one arrives today (September 9) with some additional poignancy: it comes 100 years, nearly to the day, since the last Passenger Pigeon died. 

The bird was so abundant in the 19th century, people with boards could whack a few out of the sky for a meal.

Celebrating Birds In The Rogue Valley

May 23, 2014

The abundant wildlife of our region is there to be looked at, if you have the means. 

And it doesn't take much in either means or time to watch birds. 

Birders revel in the sighting of birds both common and rare, and there's no special training involved. 

The Klamath Bird Observatory will try to help prospective birders take flight in the first-ever Mountain Bird Festival, coming to the Ashland area over Memorial Day weekend.

Some people celebrate for a month or more.
