Bird-A-Thon is this weekend September 19-20! Are you ready? Your participation supports Manomet’s Landbird Conservation program and contributes valuable citizen science data to help researchers better understand migration and population trends. It’s also a great excuse to get outside and connect with nature!
- Bring your Bubble: Only bird with members of your household or close social circles. Avoid contact with anyone you haven’t already been around frequently.
- Mask Up! Unless you’ll be birding at home, remember to bring a face covering, even if you expect to be alone most of the time. It never hurts to be prepared!
- Maintain Distance: Avoid heavily trafficked areas. Try to bird in open, isolated areas and stay away from busy parks and trails unless you know you’ll be able to maintain a safe distance from others.
- Share your Sightings: Remember to share your species lists to the ‘ManometBAT’ account on eBird. Use hashtag #ManometBAT20 and tag Manomet on social media: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
