Join OOS at Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area on November 3, 2013 for some fun, food and birding!

Join OOS on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at 9:00 am for a fun, fall day of eating, meeting and birding at Killdeer Plains Wildlife Area!

We'll meet at the Killdeer Plains Headquarters Building, 19100 County Highway 115, Harpster, OH 44323. We will bird the area, and return for lunch at 12:30 at the Headquarters Building. Soup will be provided by OOS-please bring a bag lunch and beverage. PLEASE RSVP to only if you will be attending. No regrets please, only confirmation.

Lunch will be followed by a OOS members meeting featuring the election of officers and board members. The meeting will end around 2:00 pm. There will be lots of time to go birding again on your own in the afternoon.

If you are familiar with Killdeer Plains, and would be willing to serve as a birding guide that day, please email

This 9,230 acre wildlife area is visited by birders each winter hoping to find Short-eared and Long-eared Owls, Saw-whet Owls, Rough-legged Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks and Northern Harriers. Occasionally, a Golden Eagle and Peregrine Falcon may grace the skies. Scattered remnants of the formerly extensive tall-grass prairie can still be found on the area. Fields are being replanted with native prairie species. Associated prairie animals include the Eastern Massasauga rattlesnake and the rare Eastern Plains Garter snake. We hope to see you there!
