Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Fall Migration Count
September 28, 2019Free
The format for this count is similar to that used for Audubon Christmas Counts – identify and count all birds seen or heard from dawn to late afternoon/dusk; different groups bird different parts of the refuge and nearby areas. This count is always scheduled during the peak fall migration period. Birders of all skill levels are welcome; we need all the eyes and ears we can get and are always short-handed on migration counts. Arrangements can also be made to spend part of the day counting for those who can’t commit to the whole day (morning or afternoon). We’ll regroup at the Wheeler NWR Interpretive Nature (Visitor) Center (34.547406 -86.951136) around 6 pm for compilation . Since we won’t have a single gathering spot or time for folks to meet and join a group, new participants should contact Dwight Cooley. – Dwight Cooley, Leader (256-565-6239; firstname.lastname@example.org)
