Wheeler NWR Spring Migration Count
April 29 @ 6:00 am – 5:00 pm
Wheeler NWR Spring Migration Count (NABT) – 29 April, 2023 (SATURDAY) 5:00-6:00 am (meeting time varies by count group) The format for this count is similar to 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. Birders of all skill levels are welcome and needed, as we are usually short-handed for 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 6:00 pm for compilation (see Wheeler NWR Christmas Count Trip #10 for directions). Since we won’t have a single gathering spot for folks to meet and join a group, new participants should contact Dwight Cooley by 20 April. – Dwight Cooley, Leader/Compiler (256-565-6239; email@example.com )
