Parade Ground Tour ~ Saturday, September 22 @ 4:30 – 5:30
Fall Migration Bird Count ~ Sunday, September 23 @ 8:00 am – 11:00 am

All are welcome to join the Fishers Island Conservancy as they do the annual Fall Migration Bird Count – rain or shine!

Meet the experts from the University of Delaware. This team can teach all of us a thing or two about migratory birds.

Last fall a total of 48 species of bird were recorded for the survey from the 15 specific points along the length of the Island.

TOUR: The University of Delaware’s Adam Mitchell, PhD, Emily Baisden, and Will Aleida will be here Saturday afternoon, so we will have a quick tour of the Parade Grounds and a tutorial on counting birds. Meet at the Demonstration Garden at 4:30 pm Saturday and bring your binoculars!

COUNT: The Fall Migratory Bird Count will begin on Sunday, September 23 at 8:00 am at the Community Center. Dress for a long walk and bring your binoculars!
