World Shorebirds Day

World Shorebirds Day

Global Shorebird Counting Program

The Global Shorebird Count, held every year on the weekend nearest September 6, is one of the key events of World Shorebirds Day. The Count is intended to raise awareness of the importance of regular monitoring to protect bird populations and conserve their habitats.  Each year, SoFo surveys shorebird habitats from Shinnecock to East Quogue.  If you would like to participate, or want more information, contact SoFo executive director, Frank Quevedo.
