Counting Waterbirds

Volunteer with our winter waterbird surveys of Richardson Bay Audubon Sanctuary!

Help us count waterbirds in nearly 900 acres of protected bay waters that are home to 1000s of migratory ducks, grebes, loons and more!

We are especially looking for experienced birders who are familiar with common winter waterbirds, but non-birders can also help by writing data.

Approximately twelve surveys are scheduled during October through March of each winter.

If interested, please contact Julia Kelly,, 415-388-2524 x101.
