SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BLUEBIRD CLUB

Minutes April 6, 2019

Presiding: Bill Wallace President

-The nest box data base has been updated. Tom Hery our contact for  Bluebird Trail Database: 949-812-156, tomhery@cox.net

It was suggested that member’s box trails be put on “geocash” maps.

Treasurer’s Report: Jo-ann Coller

SCBC… Donations $25.00   Expenses $20.69    Net Bal. $377.50

CCI… Donations  $20.00     Expenses $137.03  Net Bal. $7,991.95

Combined Balance:  $11,771.95

The CCI Report: In Gillian Martin’s absence, she provided a visual “slide-show”.  There is a shortage of Rangers because the application process is rigorous and slow. Many positions are available. Recommendation was made that woodpeckers be allowed to use bluebird boxes.  The conflicts between the needs of developers, tree care providers and nesting birds are numerous. Perseverance is needed also in building partnerships with them.

Elections for Club officers RESULTS: President: Bill Wallace, Vice-President for Operations: Bob Franz,  Treasurer:  Joann Coller, Secretary: Jane Olinger

Positions still needed:  Membership and Marketing.  If anyone has ideas for expanding our membership, or has marketing experience, your knowledge would be very valuable to the Club.

Trail TalesAn informative sharing of knowledge and experience.  Nest Boxes are available to take. – The Fullerton Arboretum may be reduced in size in order to build student housing. – Meal Worm information flyers are available along with holders to place on top of the nest boxes. – Previously used bird nests were made available to members by Susan Bulger.

Susan Bulger – The proper trimming of Palm Trees was discussed. – Jerry Millett described and demonstrated an easy method of using one’s cell phone camera in order to take pictures inside of next boxes – Some felt that due to weather, Bluebirds are making a late occupancy of nest boxes this year. Some said they hadn’t noticed any change. – A detailed discussion of Bees followed…It is very important not to confront Africanized Bees. – The book, “50 Places To Go Birding Before You Die” was donated to our library. – The O.C. Parks are aware of the need for dead trees to be preserved for the use of cavity nesting birds. – A list was requested for Beekeepers who will come and clear bees who have taken over boxes.
A list of resources for bees and other critters is available on the SCBC website. It is a good idea to secure the doors to boxes so they don’t rattle in the wind and make noise for the baby bird occupants. – The proper care of dead birds to be sent to U.C. Davis for evaluation was discussed. NOTE: Contact Bill Wallace before you send a dead bird as it is costly to mail…around $100.

Respectfully submitted, Jane Olinger, Secretary

Next Meeting:  May 4, 2019 at 9:00 AM
