Co-hosted by WildCare
Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary and WildCare are co-hosting our fourth Youth Winter Bird Count (YWBC). This event will give aspiring young birders, their families, and outdoor enthusiasts an opportunity to contribute to conservation while they learn in both Spanish and English aided by WildCare's bilingual naturalists and volunteer birders.
- Participants will work in small teams with experienced birders.
- Bird data collected during the YWBC will ultimately be entered into eBird, an international database of bird sightings.
- Students of all ages and their families are invited to participate in this fun and educational event.
Registration forms in english or spanish are below! RSVP Today!
Participants will learn to use binoculars and scopes, record scientific data and, with the help of expert birders, become familiar with and identify a variety of local birds. Participants will also work with their teams to enter their data into a shared database and present it to the other participating teams as part of a celebration at the end of the event.
