January 14 to February 8: WINTER RAPTOR SURVEY
The Winter Raptor Survey monitors winter raptor (hawks, falcons, vultures) populations by conducting roadside surveys in mid-winter. Participants create their own route and drive it once, counting all of the raptors seen. For information, see:
February 18-21: GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT. Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon dawn to dusk. Count birds in your back yard for Citizen Science in Cornell’s important national survey! For all the information on how to participate, check out their website at http://gbbc.birdcount.org/
April 13: SPRING BIRD MIGRATION PRESENTATION via ZOOM: 6:30 pm start.
Live Zoom Conference Call with Barb Leo, Conservation Chair of NEPA Audubon.
Learn about the migration pattern of birds as they move north each spring, returning from their wintering quarters far to the south. Barb will use maps to show where the birds travel and how you can follow the progress of their migration.
This program is free, but registration required. To register, go to the calendar on our website, http://www.nepaaudubon.org/.
If you can’t attend the call live, you will have the opportunity to watch the video of the presentation afterwards. Check our website (http://www.nepaaudubon.org/) for a link to the video.
May 7: BIRD WALK AT LACAWAC SANCTUARY. Begins at 8:00 a.m. Meet at the EE Center.
We’ll explore the area around the Lacawac Sanctuary, looking for birds setting up their nests as well as migrants just passing through on their way farther north. There is a good chance the Ospreys will be back on their nest, woodpeckers should be active in the trees, warblers singing throughout the woods… The Northeast PA Audubon Society’s expert birders will help you see and hear plenty of birds this morning! We recommend you bring binoculars. To register, call 570.689.9494
