Dr. Cathy Charles Stay-at-home Spring Bird Count, weekend of May 9
Normally we host our bird counts at Marsh's Fall. Due to COVID we are adapting it to be a stay-at-home count. Please join us! We guarantee that you will find this a fun and rewarding activity.
Here's how it works:
Morning time is best. Have your camera, binoculars (and coffee) at the ready. Look out your window or walk your property. Below is a list of birds you may see, with a link to help you identify them. Watch, listen and document. Send your list to email@example.com. Include your general location (lake, bay name, road, town, city). If you are unsure of what you saw, feel free to send us pictures (or sound recordings) and we will try to identify the birds. We will tally the results and submit the local data to eBirds, a citizen science website used throughout the world to track birds, and post a summary on Facebook.
