Since the beginning of January we have been surveying the bird population every Thursday close to the proposed tower site...3 hours after dawn and 3 hours at dusk. Black Hills Audubon Members are participating and helping our fledgling birders from our community...It is lots of fun and rewarding!
As the weather changes and birds nest we expect even more activity than ever!
Please see the BHAS Dinner Handout (attached) for the preliminary results of our surveys!
Help spread the word to the community at large about our Bird Survey for preserving wildlife habitat and all of the wonderful species and bird herds (flocks and gaggles) we have observed. Two pairs of Bald Eagles sat peacefully in a tree for over an hour on the Smith Wetland Property last Thursday.
If you would like to participate in our survey, please contact us at this email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Carolyn (360) 446-0468 and we will get back to you!
We welcome volunteers and you can train while surveying! We even have beautiful color laminated booklets for identification purposes.
