Looking for a way to keep volunteering while staying safe and socially-distanced? Put your bird knowledge to good use by contributing data to the Breeding Bird Atlas!
This is an opportunity for beginner and advanced birders alike – their website has tons of resources to get you started, addressing topics like conducting surveys, how to find breeding birds, being an ethical birder, and more! Running from 2020-2024, this is New York’s third breeding bird atlas, making us one of the first states in the US to conduct a third atlas.
Their project goals include:
- updating statewide distribution information on breeding birds
- obtaining a metric of abundance for breeding birds
- investigating the habitat relationships of breeding birds
- engaging the public
Be an early bird – head to their website to get involved now!
