Due to COVID-19 restrictions mandated by the Recreation Department of The Villages, there will be no in-person meetings at the Recreation Centers for the foreseeable future. We are pleased, however to be able to host virtual meetings at the usual 9:00 AM time on the third Saturday of the month. Our speakers will make their presentations using Zoom.
If you have not used Zoom, do not be intimidated-- it is very simple. No camera or microphone is required. Simply click on the link we will provide, and you will be “joining” the meeting from your computer, tablet or phone. You will see and hear the speaker’s presentation. There will be a provision for Q&A about the talks, as well as asking general questions. (Please mute your microphone at the lower left in the Zoom screen.)
Here is nice 6-minute YouTube video introduction to Zoom.
All birders are welcome to join our virtual meetings.
