The Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds field season for our four focal species has ended, but International Shorebird Surveys continue through October. We would also still love to have anyone who is out birding and enjoying the excitement of the next few months of migration to eBird for coastal waterbirds, and you can see more information about how you can help us with that here: http://ctwaterbirds.blogspot.com/2012/07/ebird-for-coastal-waterbirds.html
Apart from data analysis, mapping, seminars, presentations, report writing, and much more that will keep us busy all the way up to the 2013 field season, we also have a few more events to assist the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection with. One is coming up this week with the removal of the waterbird fencing from Bluff Point in Groton, and we would love to help them out with volunteers in addition to our staff.
The plan is to meet on Thursday, September 6th at 10AM at Bluff Point in Groton.
We can meet in the parking area near the main gate. Given that many people will be making a long trip to the site, the 10AM start time is approximate. CT DEEP will have a vehicle to shuttle people from this parking area down to the beach. The string has already been removed, and all that remains is heavy lifting, so if you plan on joining us please be aware of the physical nature of the work.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can join us, thank you!
