The Orland Grassland Volunteers are seeking experienced birders to participate in our 10th annual late spring bird count.  The Orland Grassland Grand Birding Event (OGGBE) will be held on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.  Meet at the 167th Street parking lot just west of LaGrange Road in Orland Park at 6:30 a.m. to join the other participants in your section and receive maps and tally sheets.  Help us count bobolinks, Henslow's sparrows, dickcissels, orchard orioles, eastern kingbirds and more.  Approximately 100 different species are seen each year.  Rare grassland and shrubland birds are increasing.  Some years we've found Wilson's phalaropes, dunlins and other wetland birds.  Bottled water and snacks will be provided.  Come and join us for a great morning on the grassland!  To register, contact volunteer Jeanne Muellner at graywolf9@msn.com or go to www.orlandgrassland.org.
