20th Annual Community Bird Census

The following was submitted by the Ocean View Foundation:
Feel free to participate as much or as little as you would like. The Bird Census will take place on Saturday, Dec. 26.
1. Kim Gaffett will have a spotting scope set up at Sachem Pond to look at, and count, winter ducks between 9 and 10 a.m. If you would like to take a look at what’s on the pond with Kim email her at [email protected] to reserve a 10 to 15 minute time slot. Masks will be required.
2. During the middle of the day, participants will employ whatever means desirable to make a list of birds seen that day. The options for making these observations range from taking one or more walks, to watching your bird feeder from the warmth of your house. Contact Kim to let her know what area of the island you will be birding, or if you would like to have an area of the island assigned to you.
3. At 4:30 p.m., join Kim via Zoom to chat about the day’s discoveries and adventures, and to help start the process of building the community bird list. The Zoom link is:
