Subject: [RV Birds] Citizen Science Opportunity for Fall Migration

Looking for a new place to bird during fall migration?

Klamath Bird Observatory and The Selberg Institute are continuing a
year-long citizen science project on the beautiful *Sampson Creek Preserve*
just east of Ashland and, are looking for volunteers to help monitor during
fall migration. This project offers something for all birders and outdoor
enthusiasts. Participants will have the choice to bird on fairly flat
terrain walking less than two miles through meadows and oak trees or for
more adventurous birders to explore off-trail along a gradient of different
habitats. The project takes place on a large parcel of private property
along Sampson Creek. The Preserve is in the foothills of the Cascades and
holds a variety of oak habitats as well as coniferous forests and riparian
woodlands. The Preserve is a terrific spot for birding and will give the
public a unique opportunity to visit and bird in diverse habitats managed
for conservation.

Citizen Scientists will be trained on the data collection and entry
protocols by a Klamath Bird Observatory biologist and the opportunity for *monthly
surveys* will continue throughout the year. Participation will include some
walking and/or hiking, recording all birds observed by sight and/or sound,
and entering and submitting your findings into eBird Northwest. You do not
need to be an advanced birder to participate, all who enjoy birding are
welcome. Dedicated Citizen Scientist have been surveying the property since
April, collecting robust data throughout the breeding season, we will
continue surveys throughout the fall and winter to complete a year-long

If you are interested in participating or would like more information
