SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BLUEBIRD CLUB

Meeting Minutes March 3, 2019

9:00 call to order by Bill Wallace, President

  • Newcomer Introductions:

Sandrine Biziaux Scherson,  Rod Silver, Christine Tischer, Rodrick Soper, Ph.D

 

  • Trails Update:

The members were asked to update their trail information and specific nest box locations (to include tree species when possible) to assist new monitors in locating boxes.

Tom Hery has taken over the management of the bluebird nest box data base.
The nest box data spread sheet is at the table by the entrance door. All members are encouraged to help keep this spreadsheet up-to-date.  There are 2,500 nest boxes that we know of.

  • Presentation: The Ant and Other Predator Management of Nest Boxes by Dick Purvis.

Mr. Purvis discussed, among other things, predators such as ants and bees and techniques that are helpful in their control. Example, Motor oil on a rag tied to the “hook” that the box hangs on helps stop ants.  Susan Bulger donated fiber batting pads that when attached to the top “lid” of the inside of the box discourages bees.  Dick Purvis donated boxes and lifters.

 

  • Treasurers Report: Jo-Ann Coller, Treasurer

SCBC Income   $315.18

Expenses         $496.92           Net $3775.19

CCI Income                  $208.32

Expenses         $296.46           Net $8158.98

Combined                                            Net 11934.16

 

  • Bill Wallace provided the CCI report this month in Gillian Martin’s In the past month Gillian did presentations at three venues and had a booth at a workshop for the arboriculture industry which focused on creating greener communities.  She also attended a professional development luncheon and trade show of the Community Associations Institute of Orange County in an effort to outreach to property managers, particularly those that work with HOAs.
  • A new handout of resources was distributed to help monitors deal with sick, orphaned, dead birds, and ants and bees in boxes.
  • Sue Bulger discussed the use of new materials.
  • Bill Wallace & Terry Powell discussed our contributions to and the importance of our Instagram account. She encouraged members to share photos and stories from members.
  • The Annual Report of the California Bluebird Recovery Program is on its website.
  • Bill Wallace discussed the organizational changes the Club is submitting for the members’ approval.

Jim Semelroth went over the Suggested Bi-Law changes the Officers recommend:

– The Board will be expanded by one officer, Vice President of Operations.

-The term of the Officers will be for two years, but  the elections  will be staggered beginning in 2019… in 2019 the President and Treasurer will be elected for two years, and the Secretary and Vice-President will be elected for one year. After 2020 all terms will be for two years. Every year the club will elect two officers.

-The Administrative Support Committee appointed by the officers will be composed of the  Vice President, who shall lead the ASC, the Regional Trainers, the Librarian, Director of CCI, Trail Database Mgr., Website Mgr., Marketing Director and Membership Director.  Meetings will be held when it is deemed necessary by the President.

Jo-Ann Coller moved to accept the Bi-Law changes.  The motion was seconded by Jerry Millet.  The motion carried unanimously.

Officers will be nominated and elected at the next meeting in April.

Bill Wallace suggested two new committees: Marketing and Membership.  He said we need to work on having more monitors for “orphan” boxes.

We need two trainers each for north, central and south Orange County.  The process for training monitors needs to be more thorough and consistent.

The next meeting will be April 6, 2019.

Respectfully submitted,

Jane Ollinger, Secretary
