      Tell me again about your Bluebird class you taught. I’m teaching one in a couple of weeks. Just found out. How did you do your presentation? How did you get photos up? I think I remember you did not use power point but you just used a flash drive with photos? Did it insert into the TV? It’s for a charter school. No idea what grades yet. They also want me to walk around their property to see where to put their boxes. I’m nervous. I don’t mind giving advice on here but trying to decide where to place their boxes make me nervous.
      And what if they have really not great boxes? I think they made them. Yikes. And what if they aren’t willing to trap House Sparrows. I think I’ll just have to give them the info and if they aren’t willing to trap…it is what it is. Wish she would have given me more notice.

        Tammy, it is a long story. Started out by getting photos from wherever I could (Sialis, permission from Dave Keener and others, and my own photos. Put these in JPG format on my computer (if not already done) and then put them on a DVD disc to run on my DVD player. Then I would use whatever screen (usually a TV) was available wherever I went. This was kind of burdensome but I got the job done without having a lot of equipment, just my own small DVD player. Power Point would be fine except when you go to different locations as I did you never knew what was available; therefore I always had to visit the location to check it out first. Over about 3 years I did probably about 20 presentations but have pretty much hit all the places/organizations available around here and really not doing any now. Did go to a suburb of Kansas City one time to a district club meeting, but that was as far as I went (about 50 miles). If you have a laptop and the location has a projector I would suggest that a Power Point would be the easiest. Since I did not have either one, I had to go the long and complicated route but got the job done. Good luck.

        Yes, the HOSP matter is delicate but I always told the group the facts (along with pictures) but did not push the matter and did mention that they did not have to watch the end where I showed about 3 pictures of HOSP attacks.

          Carol. Can I email you? I have a question. Or text. I’ll go ahead and give my phone number. Either way works.
          Maybe even a phone call. I need to get this photo thing figured out. I might ask the teacher if if I can come by in the next few days to see if I can get the power point to work on her projector. (It’s not really mine. I got it from someone).

            I knew I would be in this dilemma at some point, not being ready for a presentation. I should have been working on it. I wish my Bluebird Society was more helpful. I suggested that they have resources available for their area contacts but so far nothing. I’ll email them and see if maybe someone they know has some. I didn’t pursue this, they pursued me.
