6304Ralph Bucher: VASW West Coast Project
- Aug 11, 2014
There is an Audubon Project led by Larry Schwitters:
Larry Schwitters [leschwitters@...]
that counts the spring and fall VASW migration at
various migratory roosts up and down the west coast.
We are always looking for new sites, especially ones that
are used consistently. Our website is www.vauxhappening.org.
I’m responsible for Organizing Humboldt County.
In the spring and fall I count a roost that has had as many as
6000 VASW in one night. It’s an old Redwood Snag on the
Kneeland Rd. We’ve counted as many as 65,000 VASW
in the fall migration at the roost. If there is someone in the
Leggett area that has an interest please go by the Leggett School at
sundown and give a look to see if there is regular use of
the site. If things work out I can pass on recording particulars
and the website data entry form. A month ago we had
about 50 VASW swarming at Freshwater school for a few days
and then it died off.
