Migration Morning (Virtual) Bird Walk

When: September 16, 2020, 7:00 am – 8:30 am
Add to Calendar: iCal | Google

Using digital tools like Zoom and eBird, you are invited to go birding with us, from wherever you are. From 7:00–7:15 a.m., join naturalists Doug Wentzel and Joshua Potter on Zoom to compare notes about what migrants we have all seen and heard returning, get an update from the Stone Mountain Hawkwatch, and connect with other fellow birders around the Centre region or maybe around the world!

Zoom link:

After our Zoom check-in, we will all log off to go about our separate birding ways, using eBird to track those birds we see and hear in our yards and natural places near us. Please share each eBird checklist you submit with our “shaverscreek” eBird username so that we can compile a list from all of our efforts.

If you would like, log back into Zoom at 8:30 a.m. to share highlights from your walk before getting on with your day!
