Your help is invited. Bird Surveys at Ganondagan SHS south of Victor, NY (southeast of Rochester) will expand in 2017. The data will be collected through eBird, which is free to use. (Information "About eBird" and data-entry instructions for both the eBird website and the Mobile App are linked below.) While grassland birds are emphasized, it's important to record ALL the bird species detected (along with their counts or estimated counts). For conservation purposes, we will need to know population trends.
The first 9 survey points are active and can be used by any ebirder. Go to Hotspot Explorer - http://ebird.org/ebird/hotspots - and type in "Ganondagan SHS" and you'll see a list of all the locations. The first two general hotspots are always available for any sort of birding at Ganondagan or for birds detected between survey points. (There is a small-scale map in the blog.) A 4-page PDF of the survey protocols can be emailed to anyone wanting a copy.
