Winter Bird Census

January 5, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
Winter is a great time for bird watching. Birds need to be active and feeding to stay warm, and they become easier to observe along the trails once the leaves fall. Beginners pair up with experienced birders to continue our annual tradition of monitoring the species richness and abundance of birds that winter in our fields and forests. All of the information we collect will be shared with other citizen scientists, helping us understand how our local bird populations change over time. Warm drinks and snacks provided.
