Virtual Training: March 29, 2021 at 5:00PM
Field Season: April 5, 2021 – August 27, 2021
Do you enjoy hearing the musical call of eastern bluebirds at a forest edge, or marveling at the iridescent plumage of tree swallows swooping through the air? SRA does too!
We conduct research to better understand what contributes to their success and need your help to monitor nest boxes in SRA preserves. Citizen scientists will have a unique look into a breeding bird’s life by observing construction of a nest, counting eggs laid and hatched, watching the development of offspring, recording behavior of adults, and documenting invasions by other animals.
People of all ages and experience levels are invited to participate. Please register here to receive an invitation to our virtual training session and learn more about the project.
