Dr. Cathy Charles Spring Bird Count at Marsh's Falls - May 10, 8:00am - noon
The count will be led by Rick & Kelly Stronks. Participants are encouraged to bring rubber boots, cameras, binoculars (a few extras will be available to borrow) and a sense of adventure. No experience required. Please email registration@lakeofbaysheritage if you plan to join us or have any questions.
The purpose of the count is to document all birds present and especially any bird species potentially breeding on the property. The month of May is when many male birds, primarily through song, are trying to establish territories to attract females. The count involves walking much of the property while watching, listening and documenting all species. The data will be tabulated and submitted to eBirds, a citizen science website used throughout the world to track birds.
