Birders Needed at Elkhorn Slough

SPRING MIGRATORY SHOREBIRD MONITORING
Please join us for the second spring shorebird survey to catch the migrants as they move through the area as well as census the resident shorebirds.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

Teams of volunteer birders will be counting birds within defined areas along the main channel (by boat), and at four walk-in estuarine sites. We particularly need help from expert birders (i.e. those that can readily identify the various species of waterbirds and shorebirds), but also welcome novices to count easily identified species. Please RSVP if you can join us, and list your first and second choice locations:

Main Channel boat survey 7:00am-11:00am
North Harbor (Jetty Road), 8:00-10:00am
Parson’s Overlook, 8:00-10:00am
South Marsh, 8:00-10:00am
North Marsh 4:00-6:00pm
