counting lesser yellowlegs & volunteer opporturnities in Anchorage
- Audubon Alaska has a number of fun volunteer citizen science and birding opportunities coming up:
May 15–25 (register before May
Birds in Bogs Citizen Science
will help conduct surveys to count Lesser Yellowlegs around Anchorage, as well as Rusty Blackbirds, Olive-sided Flycatchers, and swallows. The main goal of the project is to determine if Lesser Yellowlegs are still using sites where they were documented in the late 1990s. There
will be a training session the week of May 6, then volunteers will survey their site 3 times during May 15–25. That’s it!
International Migratory Bird
Day at the Alaska Zoo
will help teach the basics of birding skills to families, including using
binoculars and spotting scopes.
Potter Marsh Discovery Day
will help families learn to identify birds at Potter Marsh as well as basic
birding skills, including using spotting scopes and binoculars.
