2022 Four-county Bird Count – Saturday, June 4, 2022
Each spring, from as far away as South America, millions of birds migrate into north-central Washington. The new arrivals, together with the plucky resident birds that have endured our cold and snowy winter, start their breeding activities – courting, building nests, laying eggs, and raising young. For many birdwatchers, the highlight of each year is anticipating and then observing this annual pageant.
To celebrate this spectacle, on Saturday, June 4 NCWAS will hold its annual bird count covering the four counties covered by our chapter – Chelan, Douglas, Ferry, and Okanogan counties. On June 4, teams of birdwatchers will go into the field, each team counting birds within a specific area within our region. Each area will have a lead person to organize counting activities.
Our goal is to collect important data on birdlife in our region while having an exciting and fun day of birding. If you’re a birdwatcher, we welcome your participation. If you’re concerned about your ability level, we’ll make sure you’re teamed with high-ability birders.
If you watch birds, and want to participate, e-mail either Joe Veverka or Art Campbell. We look forward to your involvement, and let’s have a good time on June 4!
