VIDEO of OCT Community Program, Osprey at Mono Lake and beyond, is now available

The October Zoom Program has been uploaded to YouTube.  


Osprey are a fish-eating bird. So, what are they doing at Mono Lake, a naturally fishless hyper-saline lakelocated on the east side of the Sierra Nevada in California?  And what is the connection to the Morro Coast Audubon Society?  Find out as Lisa Fields shares her passion for Osprey, and this population in particular. She will speak about general Osprey ecology, describe the Mono Lake ecosystem, share details about the Osprey nesting at Mono Lake, and what research and citizen science has revealed about unexpected movements.


Lisa Fields worked for California State Parks for over 20 years, including 11 years in the Sierra Nevada. She initiated the Osprey nest monitoring program at Mono Lake in 2004 as part of her work and has continued to be involved as a volunteer as her career took her elsewhere.  Lisa’s passion is raptor management, particularly the Osprey at Mono Lake.   She currently works for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in the North Central Region, based out of Rancho Cordova, Sacramento County.
