Date: 7/8/18 3:55 am From: Linda Woodard <lwoodard...> Subject: [Maine-birds] Bird Monitoring at Scarborough Marsh
*Just a reminder about our bird monitoring this Saturday!*
*Join us* on July 14 from 7 - 10 am for our annual marsh-wide survey of birds at Scarborough Marsh The survey will document the numbers of individuals and species present in the marsh. Depending on the assignment, surveys could last between 1-3 hours and may be done on foot, by car or from a canoe (provided at the marsh or bring your own). Beginning birders welcome! They will go out with experienced monitors. Data gathered will be imputed into eBird and the Maine Bird Atlas where applicable.
The morning will start with a brief introduction to the marsh and the survey methods. After that, monitors will disburse to their assigned sections, and actual surveys may last up to several hours (depending on location surveyed).
For more information and to register, contact Linda Woodard at 883-5100 and press O or e-mail *<smac...> <http://<smac...>*. Registration not mandatory but helps me figure out the teams.
Please help us by spreading the word.
Mark your calendars for August 25 for the next bird monitoring event.
