FYI - FW: Kern Valley Vulture Watch.
- Patience is a vulture.
Vulture migration has already begun in Kern County and the West. For the
11th season, we will be counting this migration and associated raptor
movement. The Kern Valley Vulture Watch is an all volunteer project lasting
one month, 7 days a week, 6 hours a day. We average 28,000 Turkey Vultures
and about 250 raptors of 18 species. This it the largest recorded Turkey
Vulture migration from a singe point north of Mexico.
Volunteers are needed. Please consider coming out to help and learn about
this spectacular migration. Dates are 14 Sept-14 Oct., 9AM-3PM each day.
Location is Kelso Valley Road in Weldon (please email or call for specific
directions to the site).
If you have questions or would like to help, contact me with dates you
would like to come so I can add you to the schedule. All you will need is
hat, water, snacks/lunch, binoculars and patience. Come join us this year
for a not to be missed migration event!
