Locations of KOS Spring and Fall Meetings

Following is a historical listing of all KOS Spring and Fall meetings with the dates, and locations of those meetings.

Clicking on the number in the far right hand column will take you to a page showing the species seen on that particular count, if that information is available. The listings were left in the taxonomic order of the period as well as the names used at that time. Where it may be helpful I have added, in italics, the current names for those species when possible. In some cases, i.e. Traill's Flycatcher, Rufous-sided Towhee, Northern Oriole, etc., it wasn't always possible to know which current day species was seen. In some cases minutes of the meeting indicated how many species were seen but a species list could not be found. In some cases we could find no discussion of the field trips at all. If you have any of that missing data, please contact Chuck Otte.
