GREAT BACKYARD BIRDCOUNT – ESOPUS BEND NATURE PRESERVE
February 21 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
The Great Backyard Bird Count is sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, National Audubon Society, and Birds Canada. Locally, JBNHS members will lead introductory walks with a focus on identifying winter backyard birds, how to use eBird, and how to get involved in other Citizen Science projects like the NYS BBA3. Suggestions on optics and identification apps/books or answers to any other questions the novice may have will also be provided. These walks are family friendly with hopes of simulating a greater interest in birds and birding.
FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Contact Steve Chorvas (email@example.com ) to register.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
