Here is the website
https://worldshorebirdsday.wordpress.com/

As usual, I am promoting counting these magnificent long distance flying
birds. September 6th is the official DAY but counting can be done a few
days earlier, typically starting Labor Day weekend. I have counted with
helpful friends for 3 years, doing Hatfield, Tumalo Reservoir and Redmond
ponds. I signed up again for Tumalo Res and Hatfield. I am scheduling
Wednesday birders to do this project on Sept 6th. Last year, people counted
at Summer Lake and found lots of shorebirds. Two years ago, we had Black
Swifts while counting at Redmond. Three years ago, we had 13 species of
shorebirds. They had more at Summer Lake last year. Just think what the
Crooked River Wetlands would contribute to the birds counted in central
Oregon.

Check out the website and select a site to count. It is a little different,
but basically you need an ebird account for submitting the list, and you
sign up for the location using latitude and longitude using the map
supplied. Then you just go birding on your day and submit the list with
ebird.

Join the fun, Judy Meredith, <jmeredit...>
