Winter Bird Census
January 11 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 am
With leaves falling and the forest turning into a blanket of white snow, it becomes a great time for bird watching. Birds need to be active and feeding in order to stay warm in blistering winter temperatures, and the contrast of their feathers against the white snow and bare trees makes them easier to observe along our trails. In our annual census, we’ll monitor the abundance of bird species that winter in our forests and fields. All of the information we collect will be shared with other citizen scientists, helping us to better understand how our local bird populations change over time. Warm drinks and snacks provided. Registration is appreciated.
In the event of heavy rain or snow, the census will be rescheduled for Saturday, January 25.
