Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Fall Migration Count
September 11, 2016 @ 5:00 am - 5:00 pm
Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge Fall Migration Count – 1 October, 2016 (SATURDAY) 5:00-6:00 am (meeting time varies by count group) 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! We’ll regroup at the Wheeler NWR Interpretive Nature (Visitor) Center around 6 pm for compilation (see trip # 12 for directions). 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, the count leader (34.547406 -86.951136 for compilation). – Dwight Cooley, Leader (256-565-6239; firstname.lastname@example.org)
