Saturday Educational Programs
Of course, no MOBS Conference would be complete without a program on “Bluebird basics”! Presenting a program annually on this topic comes directly from recommendations and requests from our Bluebird Conference attendees. From beginners to experienced Bluebirders, there is always something to be learned at a good Basics review.
Brenda Hente will be presenting her program titled “Owls of Missouri: Myths and Superpowers”. which she describes as follows— Does an owl hoot to ward off evil? Can it turn its head all the way around? Do owls bring good fortune, or are they a bad omen? These discussions will take place as we learn about the owl species that live in the state of Missouri all year, along with those who migrate through our state.
Watch for more info on the 2019 Bluebird Conference coming soon right here on our MOBS website AND special edition of The Fledgling!
