Annual Breeding Bird Census
Session 1 – 5:30 to 8:00 a.m.
Session 2 – 8:00 to 9:30 a.m.
Holderness, NH – Squam Lakes Natural Science Center holds a birding census for teens and adults. For over three decades, the Science Center has conducted a census in early June of bird species that nest on the Science Center campus. The census is done primarily by ear listening for territorial songs of male birds, indicating probable nesting. This is a great opportunity to hone bird song identification skills. The early session (5:30 a.m.) involves canvassing two forested zones, including Mt. Fayal. The later session (8:30 a.m.) covers fields, exhibit areas, and Kirkwood Gardens. Binoculars are available or participants may bring their own.
Cost: No charge but reservations are required. Maximum 10 participants per session, facemasks are required for programs.
