Annual Breeding Bird Census – Squam Lakes Natural Science Center, Holderness NH

June 5 @ 5:30 am - 8:00 am
Annual Breeding Bird Census

Wednesday, June 5

Session 1: 5:30 to 8:00 a.m.

Session 2: 8:00 to 9:30 a.m.

For adults and teens

For over three decades we have conducted a census in early June of bird species that nest on the Science Center campus. Join Iain MacLeod to help with this year’s survey, done primarily by ear, listening for the territorial songs of male birds, indicating probable nesting. This is a great opportunity to hone your bird song identification skills. The early session (5:30 a.m.) involves canvassing two forested zones, including Mt. Fayal. The later session (8:00 a.m.) covers fields, exhibit areas, and Kirkwood Gardens. Binoculars are available or bring your own. Youth must be accompanied by a registered adult.

Cost: No charge but reservations are required.
